Canterbury Cup Team Announcement: Round 2

Western Suburbs Magpies Canterbury Cup Coach Brett Hodgson has named his side to take on the New Zealand Warriors this Sunday for their Round 2 clash at Campbelltown.

Kickoff for the match is at 3:55pm AEDT as Western Suburbs look to build on their strong win in Round 1 and make it back-to-back victories against the Warriors.

Hodgson has named a similar side to the one that downed Blacktown Workers last weekend, with Soni Luke returning to the number nine jersey after sitting out last week. Luke trained full-time with the NRL squad throughout the pre-season and will be one to watch as he prepares for his first game in his new colours this week.

Luke's inclusion sees Braden Robson return to the bench alongside Patrice Siolo, Dylan Clifford, Joseph Ratuvakacereivalu and Cowen Epere, with Oliver Clark, Robbie Rochow and Elia Faatui once again starting up front for the Magpies.

NRL squad members Dylan Smith, Tyson Gamble and Sam McIntyre have once again been included in the squad with Kauri Aupouri named as captain.
