Leaked video of Napa having sex with a woman emerged last week, causing much angst in the NRL administration as it wrestles with several instances of disruptive off-field behaviour from players.
The NRL Memes page on Facebook pledged at the weekend it would share another video of the former Sydney Rooster “doing a lot of weird s…, including giving himself a prostate exam”.
“10,000 likes on this post and 300,000 total page likes and we’ll release Big Papa Napa part 2. Yes, we have a second video — Get tagging and liking!” the NRL Memes post said.
Late on Monday, it posted that there was a part three. “He’s holding a KFC burger in his hand and asking her to call him big papi and big papa again,” it said.
News.com.au reported it had seen a video which shows a near naked man, allegedly Napa, touching himself, but it was unclear whether this was the same clip NRL Memes had threatened to release.
In the initial video which appeared on social media last week, Napa is in bed with a woman and appears to say to her: “Call me big Papi … call me Big Papa.”
The Facebook group has come under fire from social media posters for its actions.
Nine’s Wide World of Sports reported that the first video was filmed on the Roosters’ trip trip to the US after they won the 2013 NRL grand final.
It was filmed by a fellow player, but the two videos were leaked by someone else.
“Roosters players believe it was leaked by a player with whom Napa had a falling out, a player who is still in the NRL but no longer at the Roosters,” Nine reported.
The videos remained “in house” during Napa’s six seasons at the Roosters but have emerged after he left them to join the Bulldogs.
As the sharing and publication of such videos are a potential breach of Australia’s “revenge porn” laws, Napa has hired a lawyer and also approached police, though police said he had not yet made a formal complaint.
The Canterbury club released a statement at the weekend yesterday in support of Napa.
“The Bulldogs are aware of a further social media video that emerged that was taken several years ago,” it said.
“The club can confirm Dylan Napa has received legal representation and advice from senior legal counsel as well as made contact with the NSW Police.
“The club is supportive of Dylan and is providing welfare support.”
Napa, 26, was the high-profile replacement for outgoing Bulldog David Klemmer. He was happy at the Roosters but ultimately decided to head to Belmore, even cutting short an end-of-season premiership trip to the US with his Roosters mates so he could link with his new employer.
The Bulldogs have worked hard to move on from the fallout from their Mad Monday celebrations and, while standing by Napa, are privately frustrated the latest incident happened when the front-rower was not even at Belmore.
The Napa videos come at another troubling time for rugby league with its image again being dragged through the mud.
The entire Sharks squad has been banned from the Cronulla sailing club after a late-night incident on December 21. Sharks players will be hauled before the board in coming days.
It also came to light on Friday that Newcastle centre Tautau Moga had been charged with common assault of a taxi driver.
