Some of Australia’s top rugby union talents are coming to Macarthur next week.

NSW Waratahs players will help run a junior rugby union camp at Campbelltown Showground on Wednesday, July 18.

More than 120 children from across the Macarthur and Illawarra regions are set to take part.

The Waratahs will visit Macarthur on the eve of the 2018 Super Rugby finals series.

The team sits in top spot in the Australian conference after 18 rounds.

It will be NSW’s first finals appearance since 2015.

The event will be hosted by the Campbelltown Harlequins Rugby Club.

Harlequins director of junior rugby Adam Campbell said it was a win for the club to host the Waratahs.

However, Campbell couldn’t confirm which players would visit Macarthur next week.

“It’s definitely a boon to get them here,” he said.

“It’s a great way to let young kids that play see the pathway to Super Rugby and the Waratahs.

“We are often a bit forgotten out here, so it’s quite timely.”

Camp Waratah will be held at Campbelltown Showground on Wednesday, July 18 from 9am-3pm.
