Just watched the Canberra Warriors game and the Raiders got flogged… Stuart has to be the worst coach in the NRL yet there is no press questioning his tenure at the Raiders… Protected species this guy is…

He writes an article every week for the Sunday Telegraph that’s why he is never mentioned as a bad boy in Rothfield’s column.
He is rude and arrogant, someone you rather not deal with
Many other nicer people to pick on and thats exactly what the media does.
I wonder if he broke anymore doors or accused the refs for that loss.
Canberra Raiders versus NZ Warriors - What we learned
August 3, 2014 - 5:35PM
Sports reporter at The Canberra Times
NEW ZEALAND WARRIORS 54 (Manu Vatuvei 3, Sam Rapira 2, Sione Lousi, Sam Tomkins, Konrad Hurrell, Ben Matulino, Ngani Laumape tries; Chad Townsend 7 goals)
CANBERRA RAIDERS 18 (Josh McCrone, Paul Vaughan, Reece Robinson tries; Jarrod Croker 3 goals)
at Canberra Stadium on Sunday
Crowd: 7094 Referees: Gavin Morris and Gavin Reynolds
WARRIORS HAVE WOOD OVER RAIDERS
The Raiders were wearing Incredible Hulk jerseys, but it was the Warriors who got angry and inflicted a third consecutive thrashing on the Green Machine. In their previous two meetings New Zealand has also racked up a half century, 54-12 in round nine and 50-16 last year. But both those games were across the ditch. Sunday’s effort was worse as it was in front of Canberra’s home crowd. Fans made their frustrations very evident at half time by booing the team off the field. It’s a new low for the Raiders, and it shapes as a long five weeks to finish the season. The combined score between the two side over the past three matches is a staggering 158-46.
WARRIORS WILL HAVE TOP FOUR WORRIED
As bad as the Raiders were, the Warriors were superb with the hosts having no answers for their flamboyance. It allowed New Zealand to leap into sixth place and the top teams will be desperate to avoid them in the finals. Along with the resurgent North Queensland Cowboys, the bottom four of the eight looks the most dangerous it has in years and capable of mounting a premiership tilt. “I think anyone in the finals will give themselves a chance, that’s how close the competition is,’’ Warriors coach Andrew McFadden said. “If we get there, we don’t really fear anyone.”
FANS VOTE WITH THEIR FEET
It was a picture perfect Canberra day, but just 7,094 fans bothered to turn up to watch the Raiders. It is easily their lowest home crowd of the year, eclipsing the 8,094 which watched the Brisbane Broncos beat them in round 13. It’s hard to see the Green Machine Army managing to muster the enthusiasm to turn up again after what they sat through on Sunday. Canberra has won two of nine games at home this year, and look certain to eclipse the 1982 and 2011 sides (both four home wins) as the worst performed Raiders team at home in history.
CAMPESE GOING ON?
Canberra Raiders skipper Terry Campese left the field with a rib injury in the second half he described as “not too crash hot”. Scans on Monday will unveil whether his season is over. The five-eighth is contracted until the end of next season, but will he play on in 2015? The man himself has insisted on a few occasions he will, but it remains to be seen. The outcome of Fensom’s scans on his ACL will be awaited with bated breath. The tough-as-nails lock voluntarily left the field in the second half after landing awkwardly in the tackle. With vice captain Brett White retiring, the Raiders desperately need a leader like Fensom at the start of next year. Canberra will have its fingers crossed its only a minor knock, and not a long term injury. Canberra prop David Shillington has been outstanding in recent weeks, despite his side’s continuing woes. His form has been so good it had put him in contention for an Australia recall for the Four Nations, but a pectoral injury appears to have ended his hopes.
VATUVEI CARVES UP RAIDERS AGAIN
Manu "The Beast’’ Vatuvei has always saved his best for the Raiders, and the winger again tore them apart with three tries. He has now scored 12 tries in his past five games against Canberra. It was a savage baptism of fire for his opposite number, Raiders teenager Brenko Lee. Lee was playing just his fourth NRL game after returning from a hamstring injury which saw him miss the last two games. Canberra’s edge defence, particularly, on the left, is the worst in the NRL. The ease in which the Warriors split them open at will was embarrassing, and there will be plenty more soul searching this week after a season Raiders fans are desperate to end.

What I learned is that if you want to bring a club to its knees hire teflon Stuart as its coach…last year the Eels this year the Raiders
Ricky’s Coaching career Roosters 130 games 79 wins 61% Cronulla 74g 33w 45% Parra 24g 5w 21% Raiders 20g 5w 25% im seeing a pattern here…and to think some wanted him here during Sheens tenure…
Say what you like, I have to give him credit for what he has achieved. He has given hope to every man and his dog, that if he can coach in the NRL for so long, so can you.

He is a disgrace.
Has to be the worst coach to ever coach.
He absolutely ruins clubs.
Surely they would’ve realized by now ?
Heard he’s not the nicest bloke either.
