Mounties v Wentworthville Magpies on Saturday at 3:00pm at Aubrey Keech Reserve

Despite the loss of former international forward Tom Learoyd-Lahrs to injury, Mounties Coach Stephen Antonelli has named a strong side for the side's clash with the second place Wentworthville Magpies.

Learoyd-Lahrs injured his knee in the side's 36-18 loss to the Newtown Jets last weekend and will be sidelined for four-6 weeks. 

His place in the starting front-row will be taken by Tevita Pangai Junior who moves up from the second-row. Lagi Setu subsequently comes into the back-row from lock with Clay Priest promoted to the starting lock position. 

Former Raiders NYC enforcer Uiti Baker returns to the NSW Cup line-up for the first time in a number of weeks after killing it in the Ron Massey Cup. Baker has been selected on the interchange bench. 

These two sides met earlier this year in Round 7 when the Magpies triumphed 54-24 in what was a high scoring affair.

Mounties will need to be wary of a Wentworthville outfit eager to bounce back from a heavy 52-16 defeat in Round 12 at the hands of the Wests Tigers. 

The full team line-up is:

1. Gus Aiga
2. Jeremy Hawkins
3. Matt Allwood
4. Mosese Pangai
5. Bill Tupou
6. Matt Place
7. Ryan Carr
8. Mark Nicholls
9. Matt McIlwrick
10. Tevita Pangai Junior
11. Jake Foster
12. Lagi Setu
13. Clay Priest

14. Uiti Baker
15. Mitch Cahalane
16. Dave Cahalane
17. Reece Goldsmith
18. Rodney Coates
