Canberra Raiders coach Ricky Stuart is happy to cop the $10,000 suspended fine and says he let down his own standards when he threw a water bottle out of the coach's box window. NRL chief executive Andrew Abdo spoke with Stuart before issuing the sanction, which also raised concerns about some of his comments in the post-match press conference following the Raiders' win over the New Zealand Warriors at Canberra Stadium on Sunday. Stuart also revealed the Green Machine still had their sights set on the top-four, but he didn't think the Parramatta Eels would lose to the Wests Tigers. The Raiders coach made nine changes to the 17 that beat the Warriors, although one of those was the return of prop Sia Soliola (face) from almost three months on the sideline. They need to beat the Sharks at Kogarah on Saturday and then rely on the Tigers doing the same to the Eels later that day to move from a guaranteed fifth-placed finish to fourth.
