Western Suburbs Magpies Intrust Super Premiership Coach Brett Hodgson has named his squad to take on the Wyong Roos for their Round 23 clash this Saturday.
Kickoff for the match is at 3:00pm AEST from Morry Breen Oval, Wyong.
After a thrilling last-start victory over Mounties on the weekend, Hodgson has named a strong squad for this week's game with Tuimoala Lolohea to feature in the halves alongside Tyson Gamble.
Dylan Smith retains his spot at fullback after scoring two tries in the win over Mounties, while impressive young prop Thomas Mikaele is promoted to the run-on side after scoring a try and setting up another.
Chris McQueen and Robbie Rochow start in an experienced back row combination, with Bayley Sironen, Alex Seyfarth, Ben Seufale and Connelly Lemuelu rounding out a young bench for the Magpies.
Western Suburbs can officially clinch a finals berth with victory on Saturday, while a win over the eighth-placed Roos could see the team finish the penultimate round of the regular season as high as second.
