Throw attack too strong?

Forgive me if I'm missing something in the rules, but throw attack seems very strong if you can throw your opponent into another enemy model. You effectively spend one activation to remove 3 activations from your opponent (one from the melee as standard and 2 activations for both enemy models to recover from being prone).

Am I missing something?

Thanks for your help :)

Nope everything correct, alas you lose also 1 activation counter.

That is the reason, why so few models have throw attack. 
I personally find throw defence better. The models that have throw defense (Kosuke and Toshiro) also have throw attack and that is a really difficult decision to go into a fight against them.
