Penrith players have unanimously declared the tackle that ended Reagan Campbell-Gillard's NRL season a cheap shot.

Campbell-Gillard will miss the Panthers' finals campaign after suffering a broken back in a tackle from Gold Coast forward Ryan James during their game on Saturday.

It was the second time in as many weeks James ended an opposition player's season, having broken Wests Tigers fullback James Tedesco's jaw when making a tackle.
