Koschitzke, Hille wait on AFL reviews

St Kilda key forward Justin Koschitzke and Essendon ruckman David Hille will both face match review panel scrutiny on Monday for weekend AFL incidents involving head-high contact.

Koschitzke seems likely to cop a suspension for his bump on Sydney's Nick Malceski in the opening minute of Saturday night's clash at ANZ Stadium.

The Saints big man ran past the ball to bump Malceski, a key consideration given players are held liable for making even accidental head contact if they had a reasonable alternative to bumping.

Malceski had to leave the field for treatment, although he later returned to the play.

Hille was reported for charging Geelong's Jimmy Bartel in the final quarter of Friday night's match at the MCG.

The Bombers ruckman jumped into Bartel in a late attempt to spoil a mark and his side appeared to connect with the Cat's head.

It was Hille's first premiership season match since Anzac Day last year, when he sustained a serious knee injury.
