STEELERS coach Ryan Finnerty admits he let his team down after being ejected from the bench following abuse of a referee at Coventry.
“I can’t lose my head the way I did,” said Finnerty. “It was pure frustration. A linesman made a couple of calls that were just wrong. The combination sent me over the edge. I shouldn’t have reacted like I did. I let the team down. As a player I was a 100 per cent team guy and am as a coach. That makes it even more painful that I let them down on Tuesday.
“I take my share of the blame for the defeat. I’m the leader of this team and they deserved better from me.”
