Ricky Stewart started a spectacular tirade with Penrith Panthers 5/8 Jayman Salmon after receiving reports of a kick aimed at Canberra Raiders hooker Tom Sterling.
In the 60th minute, Salmon was rammed with his boot after being tackled by Sterling.
“He’s got one in his lunchbox and one in his chin,” said Michael Ennis.

Stewart made a surprising statement to Salmon during the press conference after the 26-6 loss.
“James Fisher-Harris and Joe Tappin’s tackle was a coincidence, and we understand that in this coalition game,” Stuart said.
“But when Salmon kicked Tommy[Sterling]it wasn’t on.
“I have history with her (Salmon). I know her very well.
“He was a gut dog when he was a kid and still is. He’s a gut dog person now.”

Panthers coach Ivan Cleary was asked about the tackle and Stuart’s comments during a press conference.
“I don’t know. It’s hard to see on our small screens,” says Cleary.
“I can’t imagine Geman doing that on purpose, but I honestly didn’t think so.
“I don’t think it’s necessary to reply to the comment (from Stuart).”
“I know who Gemin is, he’s an asset to our club and we love him. That’s what matters to us.”
