Rugby league was the winner at packed Waminda Oval

Camden continue to be at the top of the ladder but now with a three point buffer between them and second placed Mittagong.

After a faltering start to the season, the Rams (27 points) have shaped up as the team to beat for the 2023 Macarthur rugby league premiership.

But the Southern Highlanders (24 points) will argue they should not be written off just yet, despite their four point loss to Oakdale on the weekend.

Talking of the Workers, they are also contenders for the title, and you can never rule out teams such as East Campbelltown Eagles, who dominated the second half to get the chocolates against cross town rivals Campbelltown Collegians.

That match highlighted how big local derbies are in football, no matter the level, with a packed ground at Waminda.

The Eagles certainly appreciated the fans turning up in droves, posting this in their social media:

“It was always a goal at our club to have local rugby league as the number one sport in the Campbelltown area. Another great local derby with Campbelltown Collegians showed just that.

“On behalf of the mighty Eagles we would like to pass our thanks to the many supporters that turned up to Waminda Tint Me Up Oval to witness three fantastic games of footy.

“Once again Campbelltown rugby league was the winner today.’’

The premiership goes into another short recess this weekend, before returning to action on August 5 and 6.
