Penrith star Jaeman Salmon HITS BACK at Ricky Stuart, who calls him a ‘weak dog’
Penrith star Jaeman Salmon HITS BACK at Ricky Stuart, who last year dubbed him a “weak dog” by saying the same three words to the camera after scoring while his side beat the Raiders… while fans watched his epic spray greet!
- Jaeman Salmon has been called a “weak dog” by Raiders coach Ricky Stuart
- The comment was made in August last year and caused significant controversy
- Salmon continued the bad blood as he beat Stuart back in Friday night’s clash
NRL star Jaeman Salmon sensationally hit back at Canberra Raiders coach Ricky Stuart as he celebrated after scoring in the Penrith Panthers’ 53-12 win over the Raiders.
The pair were embroiled in controversy last year when Stuart called Salmon a “weak dog” after the Panthers won a duel between the teams in August.
Stuart had slammed at Salmon after kicking whore Tom Starling during the game and was eventually slapped with an unprecedented one-game suspension and fine of $25,000 (£13,500) over the comments. Stuart then apologized for the forum where he made them.
At the time, the Raiders coach claimed he had a history with Salmon, with suggestions going back to a family affair from Cronulla’s junior days.
There was also a suggestion following the incident, which Stuart lashed out at after Salmon reportedly made derogatory comments against the Raiders coach’s autistic daughter – something the 24-year-old vehemently denied.

Stuart labeled Salmon a “weak-gut dog” after a clash between Penrith and Canberra last year.
And now, during a Friday night clash between the teams, Salmon seemed to be getting his revenge on Stuart.
As he put the ball down to score a try while drubbing in the 79th minute, Salmon said “weak dog” to the cameras in an apparent dig from Stuart for his comments last year.
Fans loved his yarn at the coach, as one said: “Fair play can’t say Stuart didn’t deserve that spray.”
Another added, “Can’t beat this celebration,” while another user said, “This is so awesome.”
A fourth supporter just said, “So good!”
Over the summer, Salmon explained how the whole affair took him completely by surprise.
He had told AFP: “It was a bit of a shock. I’ve never heard that before. But I’m not worried about that now.
“I heard about it during the game (the allegations of making snide remarks about Salmon’s autistic daughter). What Rick said is up to him.

Fans took to social media to applaud Salmon’s controversial post-game celebration
“It has nothing to do with his autistic daughter. I will not comment on what happened.’
Following Stuart’s tirade, Salmon announced he was considering legal action and thanked Penrith for standing by his side.
“The club has always supported me and every player in such positions. I can’t thank the club enough.”
Penrith won the NRL Grand Final last year – their fourth title in history – and is currently third in the NRL standings this season after four games.
