ISP Team Announcement: Round 6

Western Suburbs Magpies Intrust Super Premiership Head Coach Brett Hodgson has named his team to take on the North Sydney Bears this Saturday afternoon.

Kickoff for the match is at 1:00pm AEST from North Sydney Oval as Western Suburbs look to continue their strong start to the year and cement their spot on top of the Intrust Super Premiership ladder.

Hodgson has named a strong team for Saturday's game, headlined by the inclusion of Tuimoala Lolohea at fullback. His return sees Watson Heleta move to the wing in place of David Nofoaluma, while JJ Felise and Cowen Epere both earn starting selections in the front row in place of Sauaso Sue and Tim Grant.

Matt McIlwrick starts at hooker, with Patrice Siolo to captain the side this week from lock.

Promising young forwards Bayley Faull and Sam McIntyre have been named on the bench.
