Brett Stewart’s days at Manly look to have come to an end and may reunite with Brother Glenn in Super League.
The premiership fullback was linked with French Super League club Catalans, which was believed to be a three-year deal, to link up with brother Glenn.
However, the deal fell through, as Glenn Stewart was granted released by the Catalans just one year into his three-year contract for family reasons.
Glenn Stewart, 32, made 28 appearances for the Perpignan-based side after joining from South Sydney.
Glenn later signed with LEIGH Centurions on a two-year contract until the end of November 2018.
It is understood that Leigh Centurions have approached Manly on the possibility of reuniting the Stewart brothers, but would want the Sea Eagles to fork the majority of his 2017 contract which is believed to be worth $600,000 for the season.
Manly are apparently prepared to release Snake from the remaining year of his contract if the former Prince of Brookvale decides to leave.
Rising star Tom Trbojevic has been brilliant in Stewart’s absence, and the club recently invested heavily on the Trbojevic brothers, locking them up long-term.
Brett Stewart is open to the idea or re-join brother Glenn to play in the same colours again.
