Waratahs coach Michael Cheika needs a serious does of anger management therapy.

While there’s been a rather entertaining (albeit petty) war of words playing out in the media between Cheika and Sharks supremo Jake White this week, it’s the behaviour of this individual at matches that warrants closer scrutiny. Cheika, it seems, doesn’t cope well with his team being beaten.

In Canberra a few weeks back he punched a hole through the door of the visiting coaches’ box, resulting in a hefty repair bill for his paymasters at the Waratahs even if no personal action was taken against him. His antics at Kings Park over the weekend, though, took things up a level.

Cheika is alleged to have verbally assaulted a SuperSport cameraman at the ground, while also making threats of physical violence. A complaint has been laid with SANZAR regarding his behaviour… so out of control was he that he had to be restrained on the side of the field as he looked ready to march onto the pitch and have an altercation with the match officials.

Let’s hope somebody steps in and brings this guy back into line – leave rugby to the grown-ups, mate!

  • Had a player acted in the same way, he would have received a hefty fine and a ban….heck, had a supporter acted the same way, he would have received a hefty fine and a ban.

    Sanzar have stepped up to the plate with under-performing referees, now it’s time to put tantrum-throwing coaches in their place.

    Interesting that his behavior at Kings Park has not received far more press.

  • He’s behaving like a soccer manager. Then again perhaps he’s eyeing out Moyes position at ManU. :mrgreen:

  • It looked to me like he shouted at Glen Jackson – the assistant referee on that touch line. The look on Jackson’s face afterwards was priceless. I think Cheika’s behaviour did his team no favours.

  • @West Indies Cricket Board (Comment 8) : How were those few minutes of entertainment on Saturday afternoon, Sharks score a try, Waratahs player screams at his OWN players to F..off and then their coach does a Jack Nicholson impersonation on the sidelines and gets sent packing.

  • @West Indies Cricket Board (Comment 8) : Why don’t we start kicking a round ball and letting the players abuse the refs and act like prima donnas… rugby definitely doesn’t need pedantic little kids jumping around because their team didn’t win.
