ISP Team Announcement: Round 12
Author Dan Talintyre Timestamp Tue 22 May 2018, 03:58 PM

Western Suburbs Magpies Intrust Super Premiership Coach Brett Hodgson has named his side to take on the Newtown Jets for their Round 12 clash this Saturday.

Kickoff for the match is at 1:00pm AEST from Lidcombe Oval, with live coverage via Channel 9.

After back-to-back wins over the Warriors and Panthers, Hodgson has named a strong side for Saturday's clash with Newtown with a number of NRL squad members included in the team.

Kevin Naiqama and Malakai Watene-Zelezniak have both been named for their first games of the season, while Tyson Gamble joins Pita Godinet in the halves following two straight wins since their partnership.

Joseph Ratu starts in the front row alongside JJ Felise, with Matt McIlwrick at hooker.

Promising Development player Sam McIntyre retains his spot in the back row following a strong fortnight in the reserve-grade competition, while fellow development player Thomas Mikaele joins the bench.

The second-placed Magpies are searching for three straight wins for the first time the season as they look to enter the Round 13 bye next weekend full of momentum and potentially on top of the ladder.

Solid side. If a few of the first grade reserves drop back, we could rack up 50.

Was thinking the same... just a couple of big experienced forwards away from being a top side again.

Naiqama out of NRL for good, barring injury/pending rumoured move to English Super League?

Holbrook discusses Naiqama pursuit

It’s looking more and more likely that Wests Tigers back Kevin Naiqama will be heading to Super League next season and St Helens is the expected destination.

Saints head coach Justin Holbrook has even opened up on the matter and revealed the club are in advanced talks and desperate to acquire the Fiji international’s services.

“There have been talks with him and hopefully we are close,” Holbrook told the St Helens Star. “It would be great to get a player like that here.”
Naiqama could be been seen as a replacement for star full-back Ben Barba, who is rumoured to be moving back to Australia at the end of the current campaign.

What has Robson done to be a bench player, has been a stand out in this side for weeks.

Fill our top squad and this team becomes beast.

Like if we still had Milne and Suli in this team , add Aloiai, Grant and MCQueen and id say we would be premiership favorites.

I must be missing something - my Foxtel TV guide says there's another game on Channel 9 - not our team.
Can someone please help/clarify why I can't find it.

Thanks in advance.
