Coleambally’s Josh Hamilton will learn his footballing fate on Tuesday night.

The tribunal hearing for the former Blues coach will be held in Wagga at 7pm on Tuesday, three weeks after he was cited by East Wagga-Kooringal for alleged headbutting and striking.

Hamilton was referred to the tribunal by the league’s investigating officer but the hearing was postponed until he was available to appear. 

The ruckman is at risk of being rubbed out of the sport for good, having been suspended for a total of 14 weeks during his career.

Players are automatically deregistered if their record reaches 16 weeks.

The incidents occurred in Hamilton’s first game this season after he served an eight-week ban for two incidents in last year’s grand final loss to the Hawks. 

He was alleged to have headbutted Hawks defender Jacob Tiernan and struck midfielder Joe Scott, both in the third quarter of the round 10 game at Coleambally.
