Glenn Jackson So this was the night of the superstar. Not for Sonny Bill Williams, however. His first-night nerves were matched by a rather jittery opening, as the hype of his return to the NRL was popped by South...

Glenn Jackson Just a fortnight ago he was under pressure. Now he is better than Bennett. Well, that might still be a stretch, but Dragons coach Steve Price still holds a perfect record over his former master,...

From trying times to try time, Stewart shines

Brett Stewart

Glenn Jackson It is not every day you get to surpass an Immortal. But Manly fullback Brett Stewart, in passing Bob Fulton as Manly's second all-time highest try-scorer, has done so.
