Brett Stewart

Brett Stewart was the face of the NRL ahead of the 2009 season, but an off-field controversy involving a boozy club function and a teenage girl, which turned out to be inaccurate, forever tarnished Stewart's reputation. During the legal action Stewart was removed from all NRL promotional material. He and NRL CEO at the time David Gallop never quite saw eye to eye after that.

    Trash article Benji won't be happy. I believe he was found to be a gentleman who ran in to some drunk nere-do-well. I suspect the writer of the article knows this. These are our young warriors, mostly good guys. Have a look at the wayside, the ones that can't make it. Yeah that is sad.

    Try to be individual , as a young player you have a lot to look for. some young kid you are a roll model for them and don't waste your energy to something you will regrate in a long run. play the game as you love when you was young that you love and enjoy, my heart goes to your family and children, look forward to see played these season...
