Taylor ruled out as Magpies finalise side for Dragons clash

Western Suburbs Magpies Canterbury Cup Head Coach Brett Hodgson has finalised his side to take on the St. George-Illawarra Dragons today for their Round 12 clash.

Kickoff for the match is at 1:10pm AEST from Netstrata Jubilee Stadium in Kogarah, with live coverage available in New South Wales from 1:00pm via 9GEM.

Hodgson has confirmed a late change from the side originally named during the week with Elijah Taylor (concussion) ruled out. Robbie Rochow moves to lock to replace the Kiwi international, while Jack Miller starts in the back row.

Kane McQuiggin also swaps with Bilal Maarbani in the centres, with Maarbani joining Soni Luke, Alex Seyfarth and Patrice Siolo on the interchange bench.

Currently sitting in fifth position, Western Suburbs could end the round as high as third with a win today over the fourth-placed Dragons, depending on other results.
