NRL Premiership, Round 23 Newcastle Knights v Penrith Panthers - Sunday 13 August 2016, Hunter Stadium Broadmeadow NSW - Photographer Shane Myers © nrlphotos.com

Panthers centre Waqa Blake is available to face Wests Tigers after pleading guilty to a grade one dangerous contact charge.

The early guilty plea means Blake cops 75 carryover points for his collision with Jake Mamo in last Sunday's game against Newcastle.

An unsuccessful challenge at the NRL Judiciary would have seen Blake suspended for Friday's crucial showdown at Pepper Stadium.

The incident can be seen in the video above.

On Tuesday afternoon Panthers coach Anthony Griffin will name his side to face Wests Tigers.
