Craig Bellamy Says He 'Looked Like A D***head' During His NRL Grand Final Blow-Up

Craig Bellamy Says He 'Looked Like A D***head' During His NRL Grand Final Blow-Up

A Craig Bellamy blow-up is always an instant classic.

But nowadays, it's not exactly a rarity.

The Melbourne Storm head coach has become known among NRL fans for his infamous meltdowns while watching his team play.

If the cameras ever catch Bellamy in the coaching box, he can often be seen screaming at his players - or in the case of the NRL final, kicking chairs down hallways.

His sheer passion for the game is undeniable, and with four Premierships to his name (yes, let's forget about the two that were stripped) his blow-ups are part of a formula that seems to be working for the Melbourne Storm.

And the 2020 Grand Final against the Penrith Panthers was no different.

Despite leading for the majority of the game, the 61-year-old coach had to witness his side throw away a 26-point lead which set up a very tense final 10 minutes.

Thankfully for the Storm, they managed to hold on to seal a historic Premiership victory - the final score ending 26-20.

But even during his team's on-field celebrations and trophy ceremony, Bellamy looked visibly fuming after his players had given him an almighty scare up in the coach's box.

"I looked like a d***head," he told The Daily Telegraph.

"I've done it a few times and the TV cameras get me every time.

"It's frustration, it's pressure and it's emotion. There's no hiding from it.

"Things started falling apart and I lost it. I haven't seen it on TV, but everyone's telling me about it. I look like a bit of a d***head taking it out on the chair.

"I don't like it, but it's just letting the emotion out... I cool down pretty quickly."

There's good reason why Bellamy is widely regarded as one of the greatest rugby league coaches of all time.

And the passionate coaching box rants are an iconic aspect of his overall makeup.
