Magpies toppled by Wentworthville

A tough run of form has continued for Western Suburbs on Sunday with the Magpies going down 26-20 to the Wentworthville Magpies in their Round 17 clash at Bankwest Stadium.

Having dropped their previous two matches to slip out of the top eight, Western Suburbs were again made to pay for their ill-discipline with errors and penalties allowing Wentworthville to control the contest for an 6-point victory.

A strong return from injury from Russell Packer wasn't enough for the home side, who will need to bounce back next Sunday when they face the St. George-Illawarra Dragons at Leichhardt Oval in what will be their final home game of the season.
