IPSWICH Jets rugby league player Ramon Filipine is in danger of being booted from the club for his alleged drunken antics at the Ipswich Rugby League grand final on September 16.
The Jets winger was attending the game at the North Ipswich Reserve, which is also the Jets' home ground, as a spectator.
He allegedly threw a beer can at a person in the aftermath of Fassifern's A-grade win over Brothers.
Filipine was supposed to have his case heard by the IRL judiciary on Thursday night but failed to show due to ill health, according to Jets CEO Brad Wolens.
The hearing has been postponed until Thursday next week.
Filipine reportedly spent three weeks in hospital, having been admitted the day after the IRL grand final, due to "blood poisoning," Wolens said. "It affected his whole system."
It followed a stellar season for the Jets where the powerful winger was amongst his team's best almost every game.
With prior alcohol related incidents on his rap sheet the Jets remain tight lipped on Filipine's future with the club.
The QT has been informed by an independent source that Filipine topped the polling for the Allan Langer Medal, but has had it stripped from him and will be released by the club.
Wolens said no statements on Filipine's future with the Jets, or him allegedly being stripped of the club's best and fairest award, would be made until after the IRL hearing on Thursday.
Wolens conceded Filipine's behaviour was a bad look for the Jets.
"It's not good," he said. "We're quite disappointed in his actions, especially in the current economic climate when we're trying to attract sponsors.
"There are three and a half thousand kids playing footy in Ipswich who aspire to play for the Ipswich Jets.
"Their parents rely on players to set an example.
"We need players behaving in a way that will attract sponsors and demonstrate the pathways we provide in rugby league."
