Stewart to stand trial

Manly fullback Brett Stewart has been ordered to stand trial to face charges of sexual assualt.

The 25-year-old is accused of assualting a 17-year-old girl near her home on the northern beaches of Sydney in March last year.

The incident is alleged to have taken place following a boozy Sea Eagles season launch held at a Manly Hotel.

A magistrate has decided that there is enough evidence for Stewart to stand trial before a jury at Sydney’s District Court next month.

Stewart is due to face court again on April 9.
