Its been a long time coming but wests magpies very own mascot Morris the Magpie will make a triumphant return to the big time on sunday in the hertiage match at the SCG between wests tigers & st george illawarra. Since the merger morris the magpie hasnt been seen at too many NRL fixtures but former magpie and current chairmen Mick Liubinskas & mangager of football operations Steve Reeves pulled some strings and made a call to morris and he accepted with a squark !! All you kiddies on the fence make sure you say hi to him and get as many photos as you can.
The match celebrates the 50th Anniversary of the 1963 grand final match between the wests magpies & st george dragons which many say wests were robbed.
