An NRL coach is in hot water with his club after being man-handled by security guards in the toilets at the races last Saturday week.

The coach had a bad day on the punt - and a few too many beers - when a fellow patron accidentally bumped into him in the crowded toilets.

The man immediately apologised, but the coach would have none of it, screaming obscenities and wanting to resort to fisticuffs.

Only quick action from a couple of security guards prevented the incident developing into a brawl.

The club is aware of the incident but after some stern words to the coach, has chosen to sweep it under the carpet, much to the annoyance of one of the security staff involved.

"If that was a player, he would have been hauled over the coals, fined and publicly shamed," the security guard told me.

"The coach was arrogant and belligerent and even used the old, 'Don't you know who I am?' line when we escorted him out of the men's room and told him to cool it.

"For a guy who is supposed to be a leader of young men, it was very poor form."

Do the NRL stick their nose in here if the club are doing the smother, they are happy to name and shame players

Tbf, would a player be in much trouble here? There were no punches thrown, no police involved, and we don't even really know if this coach was even really being that threatening. I'm not going to put much in the word of a random security guy in the dunnies...

If it was someone involving the bulldogs it would of been on every news channel and newspaper and 2 million fine
Yeah that was what i was thinking... even if it wasn't mentioned in the original article some of the usual suspects would have now leaked the details if it was Barrett.

I also heard that it was Trent Robinson but it all went down in the female toilets because they didn't offer anal douches.
