Hat-trick...hooker James Segeyaro in action against the Magpies.

Blacktown Workers Sea Eagles will return to their home field at Blacktown for the first time since early April when they take on the South Sydney Rabbitohs this Sunday.

HE Laybutt Field has not been used by Blacktown Workers for a NSW Cup match since their 26-18 loss to Canberra Raiders on April 3. Blacktown Workers have played two home games since at 4 Pines Park as curtain raisers to the NRL match.

Blacktown Workers head into the game against South Sydney on the back of a 40-30 loss to Western Suburbs Magpies at Campbelltown Sports Stadium last Sunday.

A poor defensive effort in the first half by Blacktown Workers saw the game all but over with the Magpies leading 28-0 at half-time.

The Magpies then got out to a 40-12 lead before Blacktown Workers piled on four tries in the final 15 minutes to go down by 10 points with hooker James Segeyaro crossing for a hat-trick in the last 10 minutes of the game.

The loss leaves Blacktown Workers on the bottom of the NSW Cup ladder with two wins from 13 games.

Blacktown Workers Coach Nathan Hogan was very disappointed following a great performance the week before in the win over the North Sydney Bears.

"We need to learn how to play consistently week in week out at this level,'' Hogan said.

"With a very talented side starting last week, we should've been better in every aspect of our game.

"With our first home game at Blacktown since round four, we have a chance this week to show what we can do if our mindset is right" 

South Sydney sit in sixth position with eight wins from 13 matches and head into the clash on the back of a 26-10 away win over St George-Illawarra Dragons.

The match against South Sydney kicks off at 3pm at HE Laybutt Field, Blacktown, on Sunday, June 19.
