Canterbury Cup Team Announcement: Round 8

Western Suburbs Magpies Canterbury Cup Coach Brett Hodgson has named his side to take on the North Sydney Bears for their Round 8 clash this Sunday, May 5 at North Sydney Oval.

Kickoff for the match is at 1:10pm AEST with live coverage via Channel 9.

After a gritty 32-22 win over Newtown last week put the Magpies back in the winners circle, Hodgson has named a similar side for this week's game — albeit without several NRL players who have been included in the extended NRL squad.

With the Canterbury Cup game on Sunday played after the NRL game against the Roosters on Saturday night, Hodgson's side may once again see some late inclusions as Western Suburbs look to move inside the top four on the ladder.

Wests' side for Sunday's game still includes a number of NRL squad members as is, however, with Dylan Smith, Tyson Gamble, Sam McIntyre and Robbie Rochow all named — along with 2019 Development Players Tommy Talau, Alex Seyfarth and Kane Bradley, who bagged a double in last week's win over the Jets.
