    Countdown on as Glenn Stewart resumes running by: Christian Nicolussi
    From: The Daily Telegraph

    GLENN Stewart completed light running for the first time this morning in a bid to prove his fitness for next Wednesday's Origin III against Queensland.
    Stewart broke down with a knee injury last week and was set to be sidelined for up to a month.

    But the Manly back-rower is determined to make a miraculous return to be part of the representative blockbuster at Suncorp Stadium.

    Stewart was restricted to walking around WIN Jubilee Oval at Kogarah as his teammates trained.

    He later took to the exercise bike before he completed a series of spring drills down the eastern sideline.

    Coach Ricky Stuart will have a clearer idea about Stewart's fitness by this afternoon, with Dragons back-rower Beau Scott tipped to be his replacement should he not recover.

    Teammate Luke Lewis said of Stewart: "He's been working really hard, doing all his physio and being a real professional and doing everything he can to be right. We're all really hopeful that he will be able to do full training by Friday and by Sunday he can be in camp with us in Brisbane.

    "He's been doing a lot of little extras while we've not been training to get it right and that's been outstanding. He's giving himself every chance."

      It'll be the 1st time in Origin History if the Morris boys and the Stewarts Bros take the field.

      Also the 1st time in NSW Origin History twins taking the field.

      QLD had Kevin and Kerrod.

        Serious? Ricky Stuart has no idea. Spring drills in the middle of winter?

        If Glenn is not 100% he shouldn't play. As I suspected even if he's not 100% fit imo Stuart will let Glenn play and it could cost us. The "win at all costs" is Ricky's mantra and couldn't give a toss if Glenn injures himself further to our detriment.

        If he wants it bad enough, I hope he gets up for it. I'm sure winning an origin series with his brother will be a career highlight and an immense sense of pride for the whole family.

        I personally don't think he has any more impact the way he has been used than any other backrower,he shouldn't be risked for mickey mouse ****

        According to Ninemsn he has failed his fitness today. Good news for Manly as he wont be risking further injury although you would expect he wont play next week against the Eels.

        That is a shame for gift, but a good thing for manly.

        I agree, i doubt he will play agianst parra, but i guess he is looking promosing for the week after
        Daily Tele reporting gift has been ruled out of SOO 3.

        That is a shame for gift, he is the best second rower nsw had, and it might be the year NSW finally wins.

        On the plus side this si a positive for manly him not being risked.
