Coach took sack­ing ‘ well’

Townsville Bulletin - - Sport -

NEW Brumbies coach Tony Rea said his dra­matic takeover from Andy Friend as Su­per Rugby coach wasn’t as awk­ward a sit­u­a­tion as it would seem. Rea said he had sought out his boss of the last two years on Tues­day as the fall­out from Friend’s sack­ing was be­com­ing trans­par­ent. The for­mer North Syd­ney Bears cap­tain re­vealed their con­ver­sa­tion wasn’t un­com­fort­able, de­spite the cir­cum­stances. ‘‘ Not re­ally, Friendy was real good,’’ Rea said.
