Canterbury Cup Team Announcement: Round 5

Western Suburbs Magpies Canterbury Cup Coach Brett Hodgson has named his side to take on the Penrith Panthers for their Round 5 clash this Sunday afternoon at Leichhardt Oval.

Kickoff for the match is at 1:10pm AEST with live coverage via Channel 9 as the Magpies look to bounce back from a disappointing last start defeat to the top-of-the-table Mounties and stay in touch with the top four through the early part of the year.

Hodgson's side has been boosted by the inclusion of several young guns with 2019 Development Players Tommy Talau, Kane Bradley and Alex Seyfarth all named.

Talau will play in the centres, with Watson Heleta ruled out with a hamstring injury.

Braden Robson retains the hooking duties after an impressive last fortnight, while NRL squad members Dylan Smith, Tyson Gamble, Sam McIntyre and Robbie Rochow all retain their places in the squad for Sunday's important matchup.
