Stewart to fight dangerous throw charge

7:29 am on 27 May 2009

The New South Wales back-rower Glenn Stewart is to front the National Rugby League judiciary tonight hoping to be cleared to play in the opening State of Origin clash a week later.

Stewart has pleaded not guilty to a dangerous throw on Gold Coast five-eighth Mat Rogers in Manly's narrow loss to the Titans at Skilled Park on Sunday.

He is facing a one-match ban, which would rule him out of the Origin clash with Queensland at Etihad Stadium on June 3rd, unless he can beat the charge.
