      Glenn Stewart has been confirmed on a 3 year  deal with the Canberra Raiders starting in the 2015 NRL competition.

      After months of speculation as to his future and pleas in the media for an extend[​IMG]ed contract at his much loved Sea Eagles, Glenn Stewarts management has today confirmed that he has come to terms with the Raiders and will join the ranks under Ricky Stewart at seasons end.

       Stewart expressed his disappointment with not being even offered a contract at Manly, and is disappointed to not be finishing things where everything started, but is also buoyed by the fact that his initial promise is yet to be broken. The announcement comes with speculation rife, that his brother Brett may also sever ties with the Sea Eagles to see out his career at the Raiders.

      In surprise news that Milford, the Raiders fullback is rumoured to be signed with the Bulldogs for 2015, word in League circles is a buzz with talk that Brett is keen to follow his brother, and Manly keen to unload the injury prone Brett from their roster, in favour of the up and coming, and very impressive Peta Hiku.

      The exit of Glenn and Brett is likely to see great shockwaves ripple through the Eagles, with further speculation that the core group is extremely upset at what is being seen as a snub. Several players are rumoured to have approached management with a “please explain” and speculation is that several key players are set to walk out on their contracts in coming weeks.

      The first of which is Jason King who has voiced a desire to play alongside his close friend Sam Burgess in Rugby Union.

      The Sea Eagles have been one of the most successful teams in the modern era, and it is feared the upcoming exodus of players will see them fall well below what we have seen in the past few years.

      We can only say, watch this space, as rumours coming out of Narrabeen aren’t great, further boardroom conflict is fit to burst, certain members of the board, are less than happy with rumours that Manly are looking to sell the naming rights of the Sea Eagles home ground, a move which is widely believed to be the beginning the process which will see the Sea Eagles re-locate, taking advantage of the money on offer by the NRL.

          Well that has to be just about the worst news to wake up to after the Alex Mac diagnosis...IF all accurate!
          Would LOVE to know who is precisely responsible for our contract retention policy??

          " Jason King's good mate Sam Burgess " ???

          Last thing we need after such a positive start
          to the season.

          'Come to terms' does not mean signed? Does it? Maybe the manager is upping the ante for top dollar before Glenn meets with Manly management today.
          I hope this is the case.

          I smell a rat in that article.

          The line Jason king to follow good mate sam burgess gives it away. PLus there is no link to the original article as is the case with article postings.

          It is 1 April after all. Was good for a laugh :) I can see it giving people heart attacks this morning. :)

              Hold on, I thought the Stewarts were going to rugby, King to the Raiders, DCE to netball and Wolfie to The Footballer Wants a Wife reality show.

              Nicely done

                  He can get out of this I'm sure, he obviously signed while he was still concussed. Why else would someone agree to play under Sticky?
