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."Israel Folau playing for Catalans Dragons. (Getty)HEY, LOOK OVER THERE AT ISRAEL FOLAUSo what was the real story behind the Israel Folau/Dragons circus last week?Realistically, it was never going to happen - but it kept journalists, editors and the NRL on their toes for days.The timing of the story being leaked was the interesting part for me.A Dragons insider told me it's no coincidence that the story came out just hours after the club lost its captain and best player, Cam McInnes, to arch rivals Cronulla.McInnes was a massive loss - and letting him go was a massive blunder by Dragons' management - but it was all quickly forgotten as Folau dominated the headlines.Folau's French club, Catalans, never even got asked if they were prepared to release the controversial star - a clear indication that negotiations never got past first base.For the record, Catalans would not only have let Folau out of the final year of his deal - they would have paid for his Uber to the airport.Tiger turned Panther Paul Momirovski. (Getty)BAD BLOOD BETWEEN PANTHERS AND TIGERSDon't kid yourself - there's still plenty of bad blood between Wests Tigers and Penrith despite the Paul Momirovski/Daine Laurie player swap last weekend.The two clubs were able to come to terms for a rare swap but the comments of Panthers' GM Matt Cameron showed the ill feeling remains over Ivan Cleary's swap from the Tigers to his club a couple of seaons back.Cameron commented "Paul's previous experience at the Roosters and Storm means he understands what winning culture looks and feels like, and the work it takes to get there."Fair points - but not a word about the Tigers or their culture and what they had done for Momirovski.Rabbitohs fullback Latrell Mitchell. (Getty)LATRELL IN NO RUSH TO SIGN NEW DEALDon't expect Latrell Mitchell to put pen to paper with South Sydney anytime soon.The Rabbitohs want the deal done sooner rather than later, but Mitchell is happy to bide his time.Contrary to what some reports have said, the hold-up isn't about money.Mitchell is content with the terms of the deal the Bunnies are offering, it's more the length of the deal that is the sticking point.Souths are keen to wrap their star fullback on a three or four year deal, while Latrell prefers signing for two seasons.Rival clubs remain interested in the flying fullback - but it's hard to see him signing his next deal with any club other than the Rabbitohs.For a daily dose of the best of the breaking news and exclusive content from Wide World of Sports, subscribe to our newsletter by clicking here!
