Sydney Roosters coach Trent Robinson has been fined $10,000 by the NRL for labelling the bunker “incompetent”.
The $10,000 fine is a suspended one on the proviso he refrains from reoffending.
Canberra Raiders coach Ricky Stuart has also been hit with an official warning letter after swearing at a press conference on Saturday.
Robinson said: “‘Don’t send a letter and then not back it up.
“That incident (with Brown and Hutchison) wasn’t good enough from the bunker and the referees.
“It’s ridiculous. That’s incompetent.”
