Warriors centre takes early guilty plea

11:40 am on 27 June 2014

Warriors centre Ngani Laumape will miss three National Rugby League matches after taking the early guilty plea on a dangerous throw charge.

Laumape could have missed five weeks if he unsuccessfully contested the grade three charge for the tackle on the Broncos prop Josh McGuire.

The coach Andrew McFadden says it was a bad tackle and he's reminded his players to be more aware.

Laumape will be replaced in the starting line-up by Dane Nielsen in the only change to the squad to play the Penrith Panthers on Sunday.
