Re-fitting rear discs

Looking for some advice, I've done a lot of searching and I can't find anyone with my problem which usually means I'm doing something stupid. For some context, I'm changing my rear discs and pads to fit the disc spacers which were missing.
I've removed the old disc (massive pain) and fitted the new spacer to the stub axle (flat side out), but I can't get the new disc on far enough to start doing up the hub nut. What's the reccommended way to get the new disc far enough onto the stub axle to do up the hub nut without killing the bearing?

Thanks in advance.

Not seen that before, have you got any pics of where it's stuck?

They're a tight ish fit like, but do slide on ok.

Feels like it's getting stuck on that ridge if that makes sense. The spacer got over it fine with a few light taps with a hammer.

Interesting. Presumably the stub being damaged won’t affect anything? But yeah a new stub wouldn’t be a bad plan, had bearing issues for a while looking at the history because some spacker threw away the spacer at some point it seems.
I’m a certified car r****d so anything mechanical I’m never sure what needs force and what doesn’t, but it’s all learning for me.

Tbh that looks like it could clean up. You’ll just need a few tools.

Cheers for the advice guys, a bit of light work on the end of the stub before the threads with some emery paper worked, disc then slid right on.
New stub will definitely be a good idea for the future though. Does anyone know if they're the same between the non-sports? There are some new on eBay but they don't list the 2.0 engine as compatible. Here is an example:
