Knock-On Effect NSW Cup Team List: Round 3

Western Suburbs Magpies Knock-On Effect NSW Cup Coach Ben Gardiner has named his squad to take on the Newcastle Knights on Sunday afternoon.

Joseph Leilua will start at centre for the Magpies after missing out on selection in Michael Maguire’s NRL side, while Michael Chee Kam and Russell Packer will also feature in the NSW Cup team.

Talented dummy-half Jake Simpkin — who scored two tries against North Sydney in Round 2 — will start at hooker, while Zach Dockar-Clay and Jock Madden will play in the halves.

NRL development players Reece Hoffman, William Kei and Kelma Tuilagi will also feature for the Magpies in Sunday’s curtain-raiser.

Having started the year with losses against the Canberra Raiders and North Sydney Bears, Gardiner’s men will be searching for their first win of the season against the Knights, who are also winless following two rounds.

The match at McDonald Jones Stadium kicks-off at 1:45pm on Sunday ahead of Wests Tigers NRL clash against the Knights.
