The Magpies will be wearing Bulldogs jerseys donated by the Canterbury club as a tribute to injured junior rugby league star - and massive Bulldogs supporter - Curtis Landers. 

Bert Gallagher Oval will play host to no fewer than five rugby league matches as a joint fundraiser between the Gloucester Magpies and Forster Tuncurry Hawks for the Curtis Landers Appeal.

Four junior games and one senior match will be played with the under 9s Magpies starting proceedings against the Hawks at 10am.

The under 11s will play their match against the Hawks at 10.40am while the Hawks under 15s play Taree Red Rovers at 11.40am.

The last of the junior matches pits the Hawks against Wingham Tigers at 12.50pm.

The senior match between the Magpies and the Roos will kick-off at 2.30pm. The jumpers worn by the first grade players will be auctioned off at the Avon Valley Inn after the game.
