I'm sure Gus Gould would have said "... that's not a high tackle", yet if he had been on the end of it in his day, he would have been in a corner of the change room in the fetal position, before they could carry out the HIA!

If what he is doing is illegal and/or dangerous it should be stopped, but this was an accident and the match review committee saw it that way He tackles like that all the time with no problem. On this occasion a player is wrong footed and falls into his head, as happens with a lot of ball and all tackles around the chest.

I can not agree with that.

If he is doing that all the time than it is important the NRL stamp it out much like the shoulder charge being stamped out. The Shoulder charge itself was not dangerous but when a defender was wrong footed or missed timed it than it was very dangerous and as such was ruled out of the game altogether.

Dylan Napa went into that tackle with absolutely no care and in todays day and age that is just not acceptable.

He smashed Lodge early in game with same tackle, difference was Lodge didn't try to move at very last second. Game is becoming so soft

Anyone see the Rory Arnold hit on the lions player sat night? similar to napa but not as ferocious, 3 weeks previous good record stopped him from getting six, ARU think a bit different to the piss weak NRL imo.

Disgusting tackle.
Just think Sam Burgess got 2 weeks for a forearm to the chest a few weeks back
Napa was 10 times worse

There is a clear problem now!

It's like the shoulder charge as far as I'm concerned - he has to change his technique or be rubbed out.

Can't wait to see the kiddies in the park on Saturday morning copying him ... the Mums will tear each other's throats out!!!Dead

There’s zero doubt that it was an attempted shoulder charge gone wrong

Bad luck, should have been a hefty suspension

Not sure you would class it a shoulder charge.

He leads with his head - the hardest part of the body - and at an angle that if he misses, a shoulder will make high contact anyway.

It is clearly designed to cause injury, and should be out of the game.

Terry Randall used to have a similar technique, but he aimed low, and almost snapped players in half - he almost never went high - that style of low tackle has been coached out of the game, the only way they are encouraged to tackle today is to go high and wrap up the ball.

BTW, I'm not a fan of the ban on the shoulder charge - I think it is OK if it is executed properly, and again, if there is no high contact - get it wrong and get 2 months would be fair ...

All true Dr but if you look before the collision as Simms side stepped,  Napa was leading with the shoulder and attempting to wrap his arms around as they are now coached to do to avoid a penalty.
Simms moving off line avided the shoulder charge that was coming and end with the horrific result.
The blame falls squarely on Napa

It's yet another consequence of coaches trying to by pass the rules of the game to the games detriment

Spot on Shrunk - that's why I applauded the referees' crack down on penalties ... I think the game is producing more spontaneous football - I have to admit to actually watching more games as a consequence, and some of the tries from the weekend were dazzlingThumbs Up

Not sure about that Dr E. I think the goal line attacks have been quite conservative as a generalisation this year. The reason is simple - why take high risk scoring plays when you can just keep pounding the line one out with quick play the balls & get 20 to 30 cracks from penalties. I do agree their have been some cracker mid-field tries though.

 for once Doc, I am totally with you...James Graham broke Sammy's eye socket with the same "tackle", which is so far removed from a tackle it should be rewarded with a very lengthy suspension...

 Nick Politis rules, though....

 "an accident"....geez, you chook supporters live in some weird world...the only "accident" with anything pertaining to Napa is when his mum forgot to take her contraceptive pill...
