The Western Magpies Reserves have been boosted by the four players back from the Seniors in Harrison Kerr, Macauley Lonergan, Lachie Dennis and Jordan Bonney as well as the return of Ben Jaenke-Cain, Joel Workman, Rory Johnson and Peter Kilroy to the team.
The Pies cannot make the finals but they would like nothing better than to give fierce rivals Mt Gravatt a "bloody nose" on the eve of the finals. The Vultures sit in fourth place on the ladder and gave the Pies a bit of a hiding in their round 1 clash this season.
This Magpies side is much stronger and with the inclusions listed above as well as Jesse Hampel, Jayden Gallagher, Jack Austin, Zane Lovell and Brady Allen in the side have the firepower to inflict a defeat on the visitors.
Coach Kiran Verma will be keen to continue the Pies winning run and end the season on a high.
