‘Weak gutted dog’: NRL coach explodes

Ricky Stuart launched a stunning tirade at Penrith Panthers five-eighth Jaeman Salmon after he was placed on report for a kick aimed at Canberra Raiders hooker Tom Starling.

In the 60th minute Salmon lashed out with his boot after he was tackled by Starling.

“He has got one in the lunch box and one on the chin,” Michael Ennis said.

Stuart was fuming at Salmon in a stunning outburst in his press conference after the 26-6 defeat.

“The James Fisher-Harris and Joe Tapine tackles are accidents and in this coalition game I understand that,” Stuart said.

“But where Salmon kicked Tommy (Starling), it ain’t on.

“I have had history with that kid (Salmon). I know that kid very well.

“He was a weak gutted dog as a kid and he hasn’t changed now. He is a weak gutted dog person now.”

Panthers coach Ivan Cleary was asked about the tackle and Stuart’s comments in his press conference.

“I don’t know, it is hard to see on our small screen,” Cleary said.

“I can’t imaging Jaeman would have deliberately done that, but I honestly didn’t see it.

“I don’t think I need to respond to those comments (from Stuart.”

“I know what Jaeman is like and he is valuable in our club and we love him, so that is all that matters to us.”
