Jackson Painting faces a lengthy period on the sidelines after two charges for allegedly abusing an umpire in Coleambally’s loss to Northern Jets on Saturday.
Painting was charged over two fourth quarter incidents.
The first was graded by field umpire Troy Edwards, under the auditory offence template, with the comments being of medium impact, directed at the umpire and the conduct insulting.
It attracts a base sanction of three games, which can be reduced to two with an early guilty plea.
The second incident has seen Painting referred straight to the AFL Riverina Independent Tribunal.
Josh Vievers was also charged with using abusive, insulting, threatening or obscene language towards or in relation to an umpire in the fourth quarter.
His comments were graded to be of a medium impact, directed at the umpire with the conduct abusive or obsence.
The charge also attracts a base sanction of three games, which can be reduced to two with an early guilty plea.
Coleambally’s Todd Clark was charged with striking Jade Curtis.
The act was deemed intentional, the impact medium and the contact high.
The base sanction is three games or two for an early plea plea.
The grading from the fifth report from the game involving Curtis is still being confirmed.
Coleambally has until 5pm Tuesday to make a call.
