''I'm sure he could [step up] but it would be a big occasion for him,'' Toovey said. ''I'm sure they won't want to chop and change too much but if he's selected, I'm sure he'll do a good job.''

''He'll have to get through our captain's run but he's looking OK,'' Manly coach Geoff Toovey said on Saturday. ''He's just got to get through a few more tests and we're hoping he'll be OK. He hasn't been able to [fully train], so it comes down to [Sunday].''
Stewart would have been the first choice custodian for NSW if available at the start of the series, but has had to watch Jarryd Hayne and Josh Dugan stand in during his absence.

and his form warrants it, I'm sure he'd be up for the job. That's the selectors' decision. All we can hope to do is get him back on the paddock and get him close to his best. After that it's in the lap of the gods.''
''It would be too hard for me to comment until we see how he pulls up for us first rather than worrying about State of Origin,'' Toovey said. ''He needs Saucony Boston Kinvara 7
Stewart is expected to make his long awaited return against the Roosters on Monday night if he gets through Manly's final training session unscathed. The Sea Eagles fullback has not played since chipping a bone in his back against St George Illawarra in round eight, but is likely to return at Allianz Stadium despite not being named in the line up.
''We just need to be a little bit more patient with the ball and not present them with any opportunities,'' Toovey said. ''They're very consistent and been playing with a simple game plan, which has been working for them. They will continue down that path. They've got some big, physical forwards who are working well for them.''
Roosters enforcer Jared Waerea Hargreaves will play his first game after serving a suspension for clocking George Rose in the corresponding clash last month. ''There's no dramas between them. They play a physical game, and in these conditions it may suit [the forwards],'' Toovey said.
stars Anthony Watmough and Daly Cherry Evans are certain starters against a Roosters side which will be without the injured James Maloney. The Roosters prevailed when the teams met last month and sit third on the ladder.
Hayne is battling to overcome a hamstring strain in time for Origin III, and Nathan Merritt's spot in the side is under threat after a lacklustre interstate debut. Should there be further disruption to the back line, Stewart could come into calculations if he makes a successful return against the Tricolours.
Another potential option for Blues coach Laurie Daley is winger Jorge Taufua, who was a member of this year's Blues in waiting squad.
Brett Stewart could be a wildcard for the State of Origin decider if injuries and suspensions conspire against the Blues.
