Canterbury Cup Team Announcement: Round 6

Western Suburbs Magpies Canterbury Cup Coach Brett Hodgson has named his side to take on the Wentworthville Magpies on Easter Monday for their Round 6 clash at Bankwest Stadium.

In what will actually be the first sporting fixture to be played at the new, state-of-the-art facility, Hodgson's side come in to the match off the back of a strong victory over Penrith last week that put the Magpies back to fourth on the Canterbury Cup ladder.

They'll come up against a Wentworthville side this week who suffered a last-start defeat to the top-of-the-table Mounties in Canberra last weekend, and will no doubt be looking to bounce back in front of their home fans at Bankwest Stadium.

Hodgson has retained a similar squad from last week's win, with NRL squad members Dylan Smith, Tyson Gamble, Sam McIntyre and Robbie Rochow included.

2019 Development Players Tommy Talau, Kane Bradley and Alex Seyfarth have also been retained after playing their first reserve-grade game of the year last week.

Kickoff for the match is at 1:30pm AEST with no live TV coverage available.
