Rooster Napa knocked out at party: report

Sydney Roosters forward Dylan Napa has been given time off by the NRL club to recover from injuries after allegedly being knocked out at a party by a poker-wielding man.

Napa is reportedly nursing concussion after allegedly being struck on Sydney's northern beaches on Sunday morning while coming to the aid of a woman, according to News Corp Australia.

Napa, 24, did not attend Roosters training on Monday and an official said the forward had "a few days off" to recover.

The Roosters player was allegedly asleep at a Palm Beach property when he was awoken by screaming, and he saw a man destroying property and yelling at a woman.

He was reportedly knocked unconscious.

Host Theo Chambers, a mortgage broker and the son of Chambers Cellars owner Steven Chambers, has moved to distance the Palmbu event from the incident.

"I would like to particularly stress that the apparent break and entry and assault which took place at my premises the day after the charity event, happened a considerable time after the event had been closed and all attendees had been cleared from the premises by licenced security," Theo Chambers said in a statement provided to AAP by his lawyers.

"I had also left and locked up the property for the evening.

"There is no information suggesting that the charity event and the break and entry and assault were in any way connected.

"As more information comes to hand, I will consider pressing charges and any other claims I may have against those responsible."

Chambers said the event raised more than $13,000 for charity.

A police spokeswoman told AAP emergency services were called to the Bynya Road premises about 3am on Sunday following reports of a fight.

"Two men, aged 33 and 24, and a 26-year-old woman, were treated at the scene by NSW ambulance paramedics for minor injuries," the spokeswoman said.

The 33-year-old and 26-year-old were reportedly cleaners hired though the website AirTasker, who had been sacked during the party and later returned.

Six-hundred people attended the party at the Palm Beach mansion.

It's an annual charity event called Palmbu in support of the Vasculitis Foundation.

The Roosters issued a brief statement saying they were aware of the incident and the NRL had been informed.
