At the conclusion of the third quarter, Greene and his Giants teammates made their way to their final huddle of the match with the GWS forward and Stevic exchanging words after a heated start to the second-half.
When walking towards his side's interchange, Greene did little to move past Stevic, instead bumping into the veteran field umpire.
Is Toby in trouble for this incident with the umpire? 🤔

The AFL are set to look into the incident, with umpire contact a strict offence that could see Greene sidelined through suspension.
Followers on social media were quick to criticise Greene's actions, believing a suspension is looming for the GWS forward.
Toby Greene isn't playing next week, and his finals campaign should be over. Simple.
RULE: "Contact with an Umpire that is aggressive, forceful, demonstrative or disrespectful will be deemed intentional and the Player will be directly referred to the Tribunal."
3 weeks minimum.

Toby Greene makes contact with umpire at 3/4 time. Big story brewing here.

Almost certain Toby Greene is off the Tribunal. Unfathomable that you'd make contact with an umpire. 👇 pic.twitter.com/ZFE9gJY72S
