As with the Wests Tigers policy of sending all Western Suburbs Magpies players with Wests Tigers contracts to Balmain Tigers, we at the Magpies still wish our boys all the best. Once a Magpie always a Magpie.
And as our club song says...
"Black and White are our club colours, wearing these we're brave and bold.
and the only time we'll change them, is to put on
Green Black and Gold"
