Rapira not out for season, Stuart quits Sharks

7:02 pm on 24 May 2010

Some good news for the Warriors rugby league club with prop Sam Rapira cleared of a potential season-ending knee ligament injury he suffered in yesterday's close home win over South Sydney.

A scan shows Rapira's got a dislocated patella and may be out for six weeks.

Less good news for the Cronulla coach Ricky Stuart, who's leaving the Sharks at the end of the season.

Current Cronulla and NSW Origin assistant coach Shane Flanagan will take over next year after the NRL club's horrendous run - they've won just eight of their past 34 matches.
