When two Eagles clash, one has to crash down to Earth, and in this rugby league battle of the birds, unfortunately it was the Campbelltown variety that came off second best on the weekend.
But the East Campbelltown Eagles, soundly beaten by the Belrose Eagles on the weekend, are still in a good position to make the play offs of the Sydney Shield rugby league competition.
The Eagles are in third place with 25 points, and their differential of 152 points may prove to be crucial in the run home.
In round 20 of the competition, Eagles will take on take on Hills District this Sunday at Crestwood Oval at 2pm.
On the weekend the Eagles came up against a pretty determined Belrose Eagles, who went into the game in fifth spot on the ladder.
The match was played at at Lionel Watts Reserve Belrose, and it was obvious from the kick off the home team was determined to climb up the ladder.
East Campbelltown just couldn’t stop the onslaught from Belrose as they ran in seven unanswered tries to run away with a convincing 42-14 win.
Tries for East Campbelltown went to Chris Standing, Uati Issako and Rob Neave scoring his first try for the season to save himself from a nudie run.
Sean Connor kicked one from three for the Eagles.
