Rapira cleared to play against Tigers despite judiciary charge

6:41 pm on 12 September 2011

Warriors frontrower Sam Rapira will play against the Wests Tigers in Saturday's elimination National Rugby League final despite being charged for a dangerous throw.

The New Zealand international's tackle on Brisbane hooker Andrew McCullough in Saturday night's 40-10 loss only attracted a grade one charge from the match review panel.

An early guilty plea will allow him to play the Tigers in Sydney.
