Greg Mail said – the 45-year-old former New Zealand quick would have been welcomed back next summer.

“He has been critical to the emergence of some brilliant young NSW-based talent over the last two years whilst also bringing the best out of some of our established local and international players,” Mail said in a statement.

“We are a values-based organisation and although we would have loved to have seen Shane at the helm next summer, choosing to spend time with his family is a decision we respect.

“His decision sits well with us and we wish Shane, Tracey, and family all the best. We hope there’s a second chapter in the Bond/Thunder story somewhere down the track.”
