The ABC has the thrilling news that Ricky Stuart will once again be gracing the nation’s capital giving a whole new generation the possibility of seeing him out on the town.

The 46-year-old told the Eels board of his decision on Wednesday evening having led the club to a second successive wooden spoon with just five wins all season.
