Wests Group Macarthur gets behind Group 6 Rugby League for 2021

Posted at 21 Dec 2020




Wests Group Macarthur has announced a significant milestone in their support of rugby league in the Macarthur region, with the execution of a partnership agreement with Group 6 Rugby League (Seniors) for the upcoming 2021 season.


Western Suburbs League Club has an historic connection with the Group 6 Rugby League competition – with the main club originally built to support Campbelltown’s oldest rugby league team, the Campbelltown City Kangaroos whose origins date back to 1908. The Group 6 senior team has been operational since 1914 and has a long history of competing successfully in the competition.


Group 6 Rugby League has had an affiliation with the NSW Country Rugby league since inception – however recent constitutional and organisational changes have seen the CRL amalgamate with the NSWRL to form one governing and operational body. It is intended these changes will lead to growth and development of senior rugby league through Campbelltown Clubs with a view to expanding the Group 6 competition.


NSW Rugby League CEO David Trodden has expressed gratitude for the support of Wests adding that “the partnership acts as a strong affirmation of the newly implemented merger between the Country Rugby League and the NSW Rugby League”.


Chairman of Wests Group Macarthur Chairman Alan Buxton says of the sponsorship “Wests is thrilled to once again make a strong connection to grass roots Rugby League in the local community and we look forward to working with Group 6 Rugby League into 2021 to foster the growth of rugby league and spirit of sport in the local region.

Alan Buxton added “the partnership with Group 6 Rugby League re-connects Wests Group Macarthur to senior rugby league throughout the Campbelltown, Camden and Wollondilly LGA’s, and restores Wests long running and historical association to the rugby league community in the Macarthur region”.


Wests would like to acknowledge the following key stakeholders in this partnership including Wests Group Macarthur Chairman, Alan Buxton, President of the Group 6 Rugby League, Graham Andrews, Executive Officer of Group 6 Rugby League, Steve Hazleton and CEO of NSW Rugby League David Trodden.
