Eels forward stretchered off after ugly tackle


//

Manly star Martin Taupau is in danger of missing next week's NRL elimination final after being sin-binned for a sickening high shot in their 32-16 loss to Parramatta.

Eels forward Ray Stone was taken off Bankwest Stadium in a medicab, surrounded by numerous Eels medial staff, after being hit square on the jaw by Taupau in the 46th minute, immediately drawing the ire of commentators.

Braith Anasta and Brett Finch both agreed that Taupau was lucky not to be sent off for the tackle as a chant kicked up amongst the Parramatta faithful in the stadium.

"If they don't think that's sent off... there's no other high tackle you can do that's worse than that," the commentators said.

"I think it should have been sent off.

"It doesn't matter if you're two foot tall or ten foot tall, you can't hit them in the head

"It's a split second, a poor position, not getting your timing right, in a physical game, you get it a tiny bit wrong and this is the result."

Taupau looked concerned as he watched Stone receive treatment from doctors. It was reported that an ambulance was brought in as a precaution.

Soon after the incident, the Eels released a statement on social media that Stone had "movement in his neck" but would not return to the game.
