Madge Talks Stewart

Young Rabbitohs reporter Oliver Latham, who joined the Rabbitohs’ media team this week, spoke to Head Coach Michael Maguire ahead of tonight’s (Friday’s) clash with the Sea Eagles at ANZ Stadium.

South Sydney coach Michael Maguire has praised the dedication of Glenn Stewart to his rehabilitation while out injured, as the representative forward bids to return to the field.

Asked whether the veteran of 193 first grade games was a chance to line up against Manly tonight at ANZ Stadium, Maguire said that Stewart has been training well.

“We will have to wait and see,” said Maguire about the possibility of the representative forward returning soon.

“He is obviously training well and participating in a bit of contact work so we will decide as we get closer to the game.

“He’s just keen to get out and play some footy. He’s a real footy player Glenn – he just loves to play footy. He is also excited by the fact he is able to help a lot of young guys at the Club (during his injury).

“Being able to bring Glenn back is going to add a lot to us.”

With the Rabbitohs preparing to take on Stewart’s old team – the Sea Eagles – tonight at ANZ Stadium, Maguire simply smiled about the possibility of Stewart facing up against his brother Brett after playing alongside each other for over a decade.

“I’m sure he would be keen to play against his brother,” says Maguire.

“It would be an unusual feeling –I’m sure he would be pretty keen to get out there on Friday night.”
