Syndey prop Dylan Napa will miss the next three games, after the Roosters entered an Early Guilty Plea after he was hit with a Grade 3 Dangerous Contact charge for an incident involving Brisbane’s Andrew McCullough.

Napa led with his head in a tackle and connected with McCullough’s jaw, instantly knocking the hooker unconscious.

McCullough left the field on a stretcher, but didn’t suffer a broken jaw following the hit.

Napa will now miss the Roosters’ final round contest against the Eels, before also sitting out the club’s two finals.

The earliest Napa could return this season is for a preliminary final, while two straight losses in the finals could see Napa miss the remainder of the campaign.
