    OFF-season recruit Lewis Brown has delivered the Sea Eagles a big boost ahead of the club’s NRL season opener against the Bulldogs.

    “I’m ready to go for Friday night,” the Kiwi international declared on Monday.

    It means Brown faces a baptism of fire in his Manly debut against the big, bruising Canterbury pack at Brookvale Oval.

    “Obviously it wasn’t a great return from the Christmas break having minor knee surgery,” Brown said.

    “A credit to the medical staff, they have really worked hard with me.

    “I’ve only had two weeks of full training and it’s a bit tough sitting over there in thy gym for six weeks before that being on the bike.

    “It’s been good to finally get out and run and mingle with the boys.”

    Despite his disrupted preparation, Brown is up to the challenge.

    “Missing all the trials there is a bit of nerves, I haven’t played a game of foot since the Kiwi tour (to Britain),” he said.


    “I can back myself to prepare well, I’ve played a few seasons now so I am going to leave no stone unturned and get ready for Friday night.

    “Coming to a new club I’m really excited about pulling on the jersey.

    “It’s a club full of history and a club that I have always envied and been jealous of.

    “The last 10 or 15 years they’ve been a huge impact on the NRL and something that they have here is very strong and I’m looking forward to being part of it.”

    Exciting outside back Tom Trbojevic trained yesterday after suffering an ankle injury in the trial against Ipswich but fullback Brett Stewart, who injured his hamstring, did not run with the rest of the squad.

    Meanwhile prop Nate Myles said while pressure was being put on the new-look side, the players don’t expect it to happen overnight.

    “Our focus is the big dance at the end of the year,” he said.

    “We want to be consistent and build to the right to right time of the year – which is grand final time.

      He hasn't had the most support atm but I think Brown could become a bit of a fan favourite
      Quality player who is consistent and leaves everything on the field

        who is consistent

        That's what I see about him too Disco. Another hard working toiler, that can play 80 minutes if required, and slot into a number of positions. Huge acquisition.

        He's making all the right noises I just hope he's improved his ball control. The times I watched him last year he had hands like feet.

        When he plays tough and leaves the passing in his kit bag, he is a very good footballer.
