After a heartbreaking 23-22 loss to the Wyong Roos in Round 3 that saw Western Suburbs record their first defeat of the season, Hodgson has named a strong side as they look to bounce back against Wentworthville, who come in to the match off the back of consecutive defeats to Blacktown Workers and Newcastle.

3. Toni Tali
4. Taane Milne
5. Mahe Fonua
6. Tyson Gamble
7. Josh Drinkwater
8. Tim Grant
9. Patrice Siolo
10. Sauaso Sue
11. Chris McQueen
12. Luke Garner (capt.)
13. Bayley Sironen

Interchange:
14. Joseph Ratu
15. JJ Felise
16. Cowen Epere
18. Braden Robson

Coach: Brett Hodgson

Will be even stronger in the coming weeks with Liddle, Tui and Taylor to come back in to the NRL side.

Interesting that Gamble is named but Lolohea is not..

You would expect both to play should Benji be fit for FG..they still well may..

Right?!! Maybe he's had a Marshall-like spell of maturity.

He must have been in over half the NRL systems by now.

Good line-up boys. Should get up fairly easily I would imagine, set the benchmark and fire up the NRL side.

Concerned with the fact JJ is still on the bench , any issues we may need to know about ??

Same as last week. Our lineup is of course much stronger, depends on the attitude of the boys though.

JJ is doing fine happy. A victim of our depth but hopefully he sticks it out.

I find the squad just too prop heavy though. 5 props in the 17, but when you've got the quality and experience of Grant, Sue and Felise having Ratu and Epere, who both seem very solid props at this level, means that our boys aren't getting the game time they deserve.

There are 3 80 minute back rowers though to be fair. But we could use more impact in the rotations.

I never thought of that when we re-introduced Wests to ISP. So it is legitimately the Wests Magpies vs the Wenty Magpies? Wow get a new mascot someone.

Following up happy and BB's discussion, if JJ is on the bench due to depth, that must have something to do with his pecking order for FG? I.e. people were saying early season he should be next to get a run in firsts, esp with his decent form and young age, but surely he'd be playing a starting role in ISP if that were the plan? Having TG and Sue there instead says we'd need to see a lot of injuries for JJ to be promoted?

I thought the big defensive spells in hot weather really took it out of us last weekend.

There are some really awesome players in this side.

I wouldn't be surprised if a few are snapped up and promoted to other NRL rosters before the season is done.

Maybe Ivan and Hodgo are doing similar to what Wyong are doing with Baptiste..he would be a starting hooker in that team but they have him coming off the bench as that's the role he would play in FG..

They may want to see high quality impact minutes from Felise off the bench as that is the role he would play in 1st grade...he certainly has been among the better forwards when on the Field for Wests...
