Interclub 02 Preview

Macarthur are a club that continue to fly under the radar for some unknown reason.

A continual top performer at all major events, Macarthur finished third in an extremely competitive Sydney South West Interclub Series last season to earn a place in the Sydney Triathlon Premier Division for Interclub 02.

The Sydney Triathlon Premier League will a tough battle for all as it features seven extremely strong clubs but especially for Macarthur who have one of the smallest membership bases in the league.

An area for improvement for Macarthur is their Kurnell form, that is where they lost sight of Hills and Cronulla during Interclub 01.
