Stuart's father Steve Donlan was also a former professional rugby league player who played for Great Britain and was a member of the Leigh team that won the Championship at the end of the 1981–82 season.

Donlan played for Huddersfield in the 2006 Challenge Cup Final on the wing but the Giants lost 12-42 against St. Helens. Having spent the final three years of his career with Leigh, Donlan became the assistant coach to Ian Millward at Castleford Tigers, one of Donlan's former clubs, after the pair previously worked together at Leigh Centurions ahead of the 2012 Super League season. He departed Castleford in 2013 following Millward's sacking, and later became assistant coach under Brian Noble at Salford City Reds, where he served for a year before leaving the club along with Noble in early 2014. He was subsequently named head coach of the Canada national team.
