    GOODBYE GIFTY FOR GLENN
    [​IMG]
    Glenn Stewart will finally call it a day. (West Devils Football Club Facebook)
    A DECADE after his Manly Sea Eagles flogged Melbourne Storm 40-0 to win the 2008 NRL grand final, Glenn “Gifty” Stewart is celebrating another premiership.

    Stewart, 34, returned to his junior club Wests Devils in the Illawarra League this season and they beat Thirroul 18-16 in the grand final last Sunday.

    The former NSW Blues, Origin and Kangaroos forward will now retire.

    And on the NSW North Coast, another former NRL player is celebrating a grand final victory. Brent Kite coached Tweed Coast Raiders to their first NRRRL premiership. They lost only one game during the season and then beat Ballina 24-4 in the big one.

        Classy bloke. I'm told he was offered a pretty decent sum to "tell all" and pretty much unload on the club around his exit - multiple times. A book was even proposed, and he declined each time as he didnt want it to overshadow his achievements at the club.

          Legend in my eyes. He was the reason why we were so successful in my eyes.

            Still in awe of his short kick to Robbo that broke open the 2011 grand final v Warriors. Such a bold play in a grand final from a backrower. For that one play alone he is a Manly legend.

                Gifty was not only a great all-round player, he was also a smart one, and we haven't had as talented a forward since he left. He played a major part in our successful years and is all class.

                    Great moment and also appreciated his grubber kick through to I think Wolfman, deep inside his own half, leading to the important DCE try right on half time...

                    Post #5: Short kick to Robbo.

                    Not 'the better robbo'

                    Just Robbo
                    :)

                      What a legend... I'd love to see a spot for him in the coaching team at the Sea Eagles. Perhaps more chance of ice forming on the sun but there you go

                          Gifty was a ben kennedy clone but with more footy. If ballin does get the gig they should bring gifty back as defence coach or similar. He didnt just know how to tackle, he knew when. And choc followed him.
                          Regardless of who is to blame the infighting that went on at all levels , it cost manly its sucession planning. Time to grow up ,and get gifty back. I reckon if we did he may restore order to the team, but also bring closure to the club. I have no doubt it would open the door for some healing with matai, brett and choc. We need them back because of there footy nous and there timing. They are legends and manly needs them as with jamie. Forward consultants, centre consultants,
                          Its just not right for the club and some of its most loyal servants to be a loggerheads. That is the saddest part of the off field war
                          Chuck tooves into that mix as well. Get them all back and we will be top 4 in 3 years, even des. Pride is for sooks, suck it up and do the job manly

                            Gotta admit I thought he was off his head the second he did that.
                            How wrong I was...

                              For those at the game and the club afterwards he would answered all those questions and more

                              Champion is our Gifty along with brother snake who is also contemplating some decisions on his own future

                              Never say never but will not happen while the biro’s still involved unless a lot more than pride is swallowed
