Country's backline decimated - Lyon & Stewart Country's backline decimated April 28, 2008 NEW South Wales Country have been dealt a triple blow, with star backs Brett Stewart, Jamie Lyon and Matt Cooper all ruled out of Friday night's clash with City. Full-back Stewart (calf), and the centre pairing of Lyon (personal reasons) and Cooper (back) were all scratched at Monday morning's medical. Cronulla's Brett Kearney moves from the bench to full-back, while Joel Monaghan shifts from the wing to the centres. His centre partner will be North Queensland's Ben Harris. Sydney Roosters' Amos Roberts comes into the side on the wing while St George Illawarra utility Ben Hornby comes onto the bench.
