A superior for and against differential – 70 points – separated first and second at the completion of the home and away part of the inaugural Macarthur Conference rugby league premiership.

East Campbelltown Eagles had the better differential and finished with the minor premiership.

Camden Rams had to be content with second place, while Campbelltown City Kangaroos finished third on the ladder.

Kangaroos pushed Oakdale Workers out to fourth place, also off the back of a better points differential.

Picton Magpies, one of the powerhouses of the Group Six competition, snuck into the last final spot, just one point ahead of Thirlmere Roosters.

The Oaks Tigers and Mittagong Lions also just missed out on a final spot, while new kids on the block Campbelltown Collegians finished bottom of the table.

The Collies went down to Thirlmere 60-6 in their last game, played at Bradbury Oval yesterday.

NSWRL is today putting together the schedule for the finals, including week one this weekend, for all grades as well as women’s competitions.

A spokesperson told the South West Voice the schedule will be available to the public later today.

One thing they could confirm was the Macarthur Conference grand final day would be held at Campbelltown Sports Stadium in three weeks.

The top three sides all won on the weekend.

East Campbelltown Eagles downed Picton 34-24 at Worrell Park, Ruse.

The Eagles look like they are hitting their straps at the right end of the season and will be hard to beat for the inaugural Macarthur Conference trophy.

Picton made it hard for them yesterday, but it was a good workout ahead of the finals.

Across the other side of Campbelltown at Fullwood Reserve, the Kangaroos also had to work hard to defeat Oaks Tigers 20-10.

And at Kirkham Park the Camden Rams tamed the Mittagong Lions in winning 28-20 in another close encounter.
