    ]You have stated in your personal details that your native language is British English. It seems to me that you should know when we use the past perfect, and also that the third form (past participle) of 'throw' is 'thrown'.

    The please state what your native language is. If you state that is is English and then ask questions to which every native speaker knows the answer, people will suspect that you are not serious, and will simply not respond.

    You might conceivably be able to create a context where had throw works, as long as it's a noun, though offhand I can't think of one.

    I had "throw" picked out for my next play in Scrabble, but someone took the "O" I was going to use. (I know. That's cheating to use it that way.)

    To answer your question:
    I threw him the ball.
    I had thrown away that paper before I realized how important it was.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
