Sharks coach has no regrets

4:22 pm on 21 July 2010

Ricky Stuart says he has no regrets about his walkout on his Cronulla club which left his players to find out he'd quit by reading the morning newspaper.

Stuart's tumultuous four-year reign at the Sharks came to an abrupt end on Monday night when he handed in his resignation, but senior members were forced to hear the news via the media with Stuart not fronting them until mid-afternoon.

By that stage the squad had already been briefed by new coach Shane Flanagan - who wasn't expected to take over until the start of next season.

Stuart says he explained to his players that he couldn't contact all of them on Monday night.
