Stanley overcame the ailment and returned to the field for the Illawarra Cutters where he featured in the lock-forward position.

Stanley was able to return to the first-grade field against the Canberra Raiders in Round 23 and continued to play the remaining three games.

He made his only appearance on the run-on side as hooker where he scored his sole try of the year.
