Struggling Manly stars’ careers in limbo

THE careers of Manly veterans Brett Stewart and Steve Matai are hanging by a thread, with both stars still yet to return to pre-season training.

Stewart has been battling a chronic knee injury that threatens to call curtains on a glittering 14-year career for the Sea Eagles, while a long-term neck issue is feared to hold a similar fate for Matai.

Matai’s last appearance in the maroon and white was back in round nine last year, while Stewart hasn’t been sighted since round 16 and struggled to produce his best form in 2016, but he had been expected back at training after the New Year.

With emerging star Tom Trbojevic pencilled in as the club’s long-term fullback, rumours of Stewart being shopped to Super League to Catalans - despite having a year remaining on his current deal - have been rife.

Trbojevic’s preferred position is at the back and he’s looking odds-on to start 2017 there...

Rusty, Joey and me: Keary’s life lessons

LUKE Keary is bang on.

“There’s nothing in the manual” when it comes to storming out at 3am after a sledge from Russell Crowe, an Academy award winner who doubles as your boss.

Even for rugby league, that’s a new one.

Keary is on the money again when you ask what he’s learned, almost 12 months to the day since the infamous Nana Glen stoush that marked the beginning of the end for him at Souths.

“You realise you’re not going to get along with everyone that you meet in any form of life.”

Matulino to miss start of season

WARRIORS prop Ben Matulino is set to undergo knee surgery and will miss the start of the NRL season.

The 28-year-old suffered the injury to his left knee at training following the Christmas break and the club announced on Wednesday the call has been made for him to have surgery in the next few days.

New Zealand international Matulino’s pre-season had already been disrupted after having surgery on his right knee in September which ruled him out of the Kiwis’ Four Nations campaign late last year.

Semi’s Parramatta exit confirmed

PARRAMATTA’S Fijian flyer Semi Radradra will bid au revoir to the NRL at the end of this season after agreeing to a two-year $1.5 million deal to join French rugby union club Toulon.

In the latest twist in a strange 10-month saga, the Eels were unable to compete with the huge cheque book of flamboyant French Toulon owner Mourad Boudjellal.

Parramatta Eels members have tonight been sent an email signed by new chief executive Bernie Gurr explaining how Toulon has secured Radradra’s services for 2018 and 2019.

The Eels were in negotiations to extended Radradra’s contract beyond this season, but the money on offer in the south of France simply blew them out of the market.

There have been numerous false starts in relation to Radradra linking with Toulon, with initial reports last April suggesting the powerful speedster could have walked out on the Eels at the end of last season.

Dugan gives Dragons contract deadline

ST GEORGE Illawarra star Josh Dugan has revealed his manager has begun contract negotiations with the Dragons, with the off-contract fullback looking to fast-track talks for a new long-term deal at the club.

Dugan wants to have his future sorted before round one — which kicks off on March 2 — so the Dragons have 51 days to come to an agreement on an extension.

The 26-year-old is into his second week of pre-season training after a break following a successful Four Nations tournament with the Australian Kangaroos.

“Yeah, my manager started talks with the club (Wednesday),” Dugan told foxsports.com.au.

“I’m looking to get something sorted before the seasons starts, I don’t want anything hanging over my head going into the season.

Brain fade: Women's Oztag rugby league team throws away victory ... - Perth Now

IF you think Port Adelaide’s AFL elimination exit against West Coast was heartbreaking, you ain’t seen nothing yet.

While conceding a goal after the siren in extra-time is a horrible way to go, this women’s Oztag rugby league grand final in Newcastle takes the cake.

The video, captured by BarTV Sports, shows one of the more miraculous wins you’re likely to see.

Cardiff Cobras were down 6-4 when the hooter sounds in their clash against West Wallsend.

But, in a moment of madness, a Magpies player threw the ball up to celebrate their “win” instead of securing the ball.

An opportunistic Cobras player then pounced, swooping on the loose ball before running about 25 metres past her stunned opponents to score the match-winning try.

The commentators couldn’t believe their eyes.

“Is this play on?” he questioned.

“She’s thrown the ball in the air... what is going on?
