Canberra coach Ricky Stuart has taken another dig at the NRL, this time suggesting the Raiders are being treated differently to other clubs around the league.
With Friday’s controversial incident still on his mind, Stuart jumped on ABC Radio on Saturday, and spoke about the potential bias against his club.
“If I said there was a bias against the Raiders, they would be onto me a lot quicker than they are at the moment,” Stuart told ABC Radio.
“They would be onto me and fine me.
“Yet there was another coach in the game who said there was a bias against his club and nothing was done. We get treated differently here.
“I’ve been to a number of other clubs, this club gets treated differently to other clubs I have been involved in and other clubs I know have got a higher profile and who they need in their competition.”
Even before Friday’s controversial decision, the Raiders were at odds with the NRL over the suspension of Jack Wighton, who had his club-imposed ban of six weeks extended to 10 matches by the league’s integrity unit.
Canberra weren’t pleased with the decision given they had to make their own ruling first, and weren’t sure why they needed to if the NRL have the potential to overrule a club suspension.
Stuart then unloaded on the NRL following Friday’s loss to Cronulla, although foxsports.com.au believe he won’t be handed a breach notice for his comments.
