The pair have flourished in the QLD Cup this season with Souths Logan and reportedly impressed Bulldogs football boss Peter Sharp and chairman John Khoury, who were present at Davies Park.
According to Clarke's report, the Canterbury heads were on lookout at the Magpies' clash with the PNG Hunters during their stay in Brisbane for Magic Round, as Paix and Hetherington both played key parts in the 48-14 victory.
Hetherington managed a double in the win - opening the scoring while Cory Paix added the Magpies' second try of the day.
Paix was instrumental from dummy-half, a position the Bulldogs have made clear is an area they will look to bolster for next season.
The 21-year-old is currently contracted at Red Hill until the end of next season, while Hetherington is penned to a development deal.
