Two big games of footy ahead at Campbelltown today!

Campbelltown Sports Stadium will play host two big games of football today as the club's Harvey Norman NSW Women's Premiership and Canterbury Cup sides take to the field.

As we begin to approach the pointy end of the season with finals spots on the line, Wests Tigers will no doubt relish the opportunity to run out in front of their home fans once again and try to secure the vital two points on offer for both sides.

In a huge game for the women's team, Wests Tigers can officially secure a finals berth for the first time in club history with a win over Canterbury-Bankstown.

After a slow start to the year, Wests Tigers have hit a good run of form in the middle of the season to win their last three and remain unbeaten since Round 8.

That run of form has taken them to fifth spot on the ladder with three games remaining in the regular season, and while it's unlikely they'll be able to move in to the top four, they can secure a finals berth with a victory this morning.

The Bulldogs come in to the contest sitting in 10th position with just one win all year — over the last-placed Brothers — but Wests Tigers certainly won't be taking the game for granted given the finals spot on the line should they get the win.

Following that game, it's another huge contest at home for the club's Canterbury Cup side as Western Suburbs look to bounce back from a last-start defeat.

Despite boasting a strong side laden with NRL talent last week, the Magpies were no match in the end for an in-form South Sydney side as they went down in comprehensive fashion, so they'll be determined to turn that around today.

A win on Saturday for Newtown sees the Magpies slip to seventh spot on the ladder, but they can jump back up to sixth should they get the job done against North Sydney, who themselves sit just outside the top eight on for-and-against.

When they met earlier in the season, it was North Sydney who prevailed in wet and miserable conditions as part of the team's Old Boys Day at North Sydney Oval, but they'll face a much different proposition this time around at Campbelltown. 

The Bears have been comprehensively beaten by the Panthers (def. 32-0) and Bulldogs (def. 42-16) in the past two weeks, so the Magpies' attack — which has averaged less than 15 points per game in the past three weeks — will be certainly keen to try and continue that run of form when they clash on Sunday.

Sunday's game will be the fourth game in a row for the Magpies at Campbelltown Sports Stadium, but with five straight away games to end the year, they'll know the importance of getting the two points on offer at home this weekend.

Kickoff for the match is at 1:10pm AEST with live TV coverage via Channel 9.
