Billy Walters enters plea on dangerous throw

Billy Walters is free to be selected for Easts Tigers for Sunday's Intrust Super Cup grand final against Redcliffe, despite pleading guilty to a dangerous throw.

Son of Queensland Maroons State of Origin coach Kevin, 24-year-old Walters jnr would have missed the finale if he tried to fight the charge and lost.

Instead the Tigers entered a guilty plea on behalf of Walters to qualify for a 25 per cent discount and he has incurred 75 demerit points which he will carry into the future.

The dangerous throw was reported by on-field match officials in the 27th minute of Easts' big 36-26 win against Burleigh in the preliminary final.

Walters was judged to have placed Bears forward and former NRL player Jamie Dowling in a dangerous position.

Easts will announce their grand final team at 6pm tonight, Tuesday, September 18.

The Tigers are searching for their first-ever premiership in the Intrust Super Cup, having lost all four of their previous grand finals in the competition.
