ISP Team Announcement: Round 7

Western Suburbs Magpies Intrust Super Premiership Coach Brett Hodgson has named his side to take on the Newcastle Knights this Saturday for their Round 7 clash.

Kickoff for the match is at 3:00pm AEST from Campbelltown Sports Stadium as the top-of-the-table Magpies look to bounce back from a last-second defeat in Round 6 to the North Sydney Bears.

Hodgson has named a strong side for Saturday's game against the last-placed Knights, with Tuimoala Lolohea, Mahe Fonua, Matt McIlwrick, Tim Grant and JJ Felise all named in the squad.

Tyson Gamble returns to the side at five-eighth after being retained in the NRL extended squad last week as cover, while 2018 development player Sam McIntyre earns his first start of the year in the back row.
