What will be the outcome of Ricky Stuart’s explosive comments?
Sydney Morning Herald reporter Michael Chammas expects Ricky Stuart to be hit with a one-game ban after his explosive post-match comments.
After Penrith’s 26-6 defeat of the Raiders, Stuart labelled the Panthers’ stand-in five-eighth a “weak-gutted dog” for kicking Tom Starling in the groin.
The Raiders are ready to accept any punishment handed down by the NRL over Ricky Stuart’s post-match attack on Jaeman Salmon, which could include suspension from future games.
The Raiders say they “do not condone” Ricky Stuart’s comments and the NRL’s investigation is ongoing with Jaeman Salmon’s family calling on the league to take action.
Stuart released a public apology on Sunday but has not contacted Salmon on the Panthers personally.
Michael Chammas told Mark Levy the comments are embarrassing for the game.
“It was a rookie error from a very experienced coach.”
