The states top rugby players will head to Camden this Saturday for a full-on day of hard-hitting action.

Camden Rugby Park will host the Macarthur 10s Rugby tournament on Saturday, February 22 from 9am until late afternoon.

Camden Rugby's Patrick Hutchinson said the round robin-style competition will feature players from across NSW.

"It's 10 aside games so we have 10 players on the field for two 10 minute halves," he said.

"It's a really fast-pace version of the game so it's a bit more exciting than the standard 15 player format.

"There is more action because less players on the field means the ball moves around a bit more."

The club will also have full bar and canteen service on the day.

Mr Hutchinson urged locals to come down and cheer on the Macarthur teams.

"We will have men and women's events with a share in $9000 prize money up for grabs," he said.

"It's going to be a fun family day full of rugby action.

"It's particularly great for anyone who wants to come and see rugby in a different format."

There will be back-to-back games throughout the day.
