Manly Sea Eagles officials have confirmed that star NRL fullback Brett Stewart was arrested last month over an altercation.

A police spokesperson said about 1.15 am on January 19 police attended a licenced premises at The Corso in Manly.

''Officers were told an altercation occurred between two men age 21 and 27,'' she said.

''The 27-year-old man was arrested and taken to Manly police station where he was released pending a further investigation,'' she said.

The incident investigation was now over.

''No offences have been detected and police will take no further action,'' she said.

The police said they issued an infringement notice to the 21-year-old for an "excluded person return to licensed premises", with instructions not to return to The Corso.

Meanwhile, Manly officials are hopeful Stewart's brother and test back-rower Glenn Stewart will miss just the opening six rounds of the NRL season due to ongoing concerns with his left knee.

Glenn Stewart underwent off-season surgery to clean up some cartilage in the troublesome joint, having undergone similar surgery last off-season.
