A five-week suspension for Jamie Gilligan will now be handed down to the NRL on Monday.
The NRL confirmed Gilliam was suspended for failing to provide evidence in a hearing into the conduct of the club’s head of performance, Brett Burgess, last year.
The club’s disciplinary panel heard Gilliam had allegedly told Burgess he was not fit to play at Parramatta and told him he would be benched if he played.
Burgess was suspended the following week.
It was not immediately clear whether Gilliam will be given another ban or if he will be reinstated.
The NSW Police Integrity Commissioner is to report on Gilliam’s suspension on Monday, but Gilliam is understood to be appealing the decision.
In a statement Gilliam said he was disappointed in the outcome of the hearing.
“I believe it’s a complete injustice to me, and I’m not happy about the way I was treated.
I’ve never been the kind of person to ignore the process and it was wrong,” Gilliam told Channel Nine.
“It’s been a long, difficult, stressful and sometimes very frustrating year for me and I want to make amends and move forward.”
Gilliam, who is one of the stars of the NRL’s premiership-winning side, was suspended from the club for five games in 2016 and again in 2017.
The 32-year-old had been due to be reinstated in 2019 but his future was also put on hold because of a personal matter.
