Jones pleaded guilty to several breaches of the Sanzar Code of Conduct after his criticism of the performance of referee Matt Goddard during the game at Suncorp Stadium.
Sanzar has recently announced zero tolerance on criticism of referee performances in rugby and indicated Jones faced a hefty fine and/or a suspension from coaching.
However, Willis took into consideration Jones' long service to the game, his plea of guilty, his undertaking to comply with the Sanzar code of conduct and his agreement to provide a written apology to Matt Goddard when deciding a $10,000 fine was sufficient punishment for Jones' actions.
The fine is to be paid to the charitable organisation, the Spinal Injuries Association of Queensland within 28 days.
