Two men from Melbourne who snuck into Western Australia using forged G2G passes via the Northern Territory for the AFL grand final in Perth have plead guilty.

Mark Babbage, 39, and Hayden Burbank, 49, entered guilty pleas to four charges, three in relation to failing to comply with the directions of the Chief Health Officer and one charge of fraudulently altering documents in order to gain entry to WA.

Nine News Reporter Joshua Dawe said the pair’s defence accepted jail term was appropriate but argued for a partially suspended sentence.

“They acknowledged the gravity of the breach, they accepted all the facts put forward by the prosecution,” he told Liam Bartlett on 6PR Mornings.

“They admitted it was sophisticated the way they gained entry, they admitted it was deceitful, and they thought nothing short of imprisonment would be acceptable for the court to find, however hoping for their case to be partial.”

The matter was adjourned until later on Wednesday evening for sentencing.
