    Not sure if this has been mentioned elsewhere but I heard this afternoon (not from anyone connected to club) that Snake will be assisting Matt Ballin with under 20s.

    I know he is back in Sydney- anyone else heard this??

        From Danny Wielder in the SMH

        Stewart back in Sydney
        After a stint in Melbourne as an owner and manager of a restaurant, one of the Sea Eagles’ greatest players, Brett Stewart, is back in town. Stewart still has his Melbourne business but is now working in Sydney for a company that Bob Fulton owns. With Des Hasler back at the Eagles, it will be interesting to see if Stewart re-involves himself with his club.
        ———————————————————

        Very interesting I always got the vibe that it was bozo that pushed to have Brett retired off. It would seem that maybe it was t spaz who was the ironstine behind that.

        Forget the 20s make him Turbos personal coach. That poor kid has so much potiental and despite his man crush on Trent his game didn’t develop like it should have.

          100% behind this call.
          Positional play and more talk are Snake specials and will see Turbo fly - the perfect teacher for a quality student who could be anything....

              Great news if true. Snake was a once in a generation player.

                From what I remember, Barrett wanted to drop Snake after the Rd.16 game against the Cows in Townsville in 2016 (which he ended up doing, that was Snake's last game) and he allegedly had a big argument over it with Bozo who didn't think Snake should have been (or deserved to be) dropped. So my reading is that Bozo was actually going into bat for Snake.

                    Unfortunately by that stage, Snake's body (legs) was basically done so on one hand I can understand it, though Snake always maintained that he felt he still had more to give. But he definitely deserved to go out better than what Barrett gave him.

                      I sense an epic kerfuffle brewing.

                        I’ll admit I thought snake played a season too long. Nothing has changed that thinking. Love him as a player but his body was just broken at the end. Shame it all went the way it did though

                          Let’s not argue about Brett’s last year, let’s remember the joy he gave us all in the previous ones.

                          And I hope like anything that he IS involved again with the club.

                          He could teach young Turbo a thing or two that’s for sure.

                            Yeh I read that Weirdler article and thought it'd be great if the club could mend a bridge and get him back in some capacity. To hear that it's happening is great news. Snake was one of our best and if it wasn't for Wombat he'd be a moral to be considered our best ever fullback. Instead he's now involved in a photo finish for that title which is a testament to his ability, because Eadie is one of the greats.

                            Criminal that Brett effectively missed two years of his career otherwise he would have given Irvine's try scoring record a shake. If he can work with Turbo and pass on some of that great defensive ability of his then it will take Tommy's game to the next level.

                              You mercilessly bag TT, way over the top and then in here you’re on his wagon saying how great he could be.

                                I’d have Ridge right up there in a 3 way finish. Wombat was my favourite. Snake amazing strike record and reading of the game. Ridge epic in his organising and will to win, along with almost every 4 pointer turning into 6.

                                  No one away from the Sea Eagles will ever admit it, but Brett Stewart at his best was superior to Slater at his best. Much more complete footballer.
