The home and away has concluded and it is time for the finals.

The Yass Magpies League Tag team finished third on Canberra Region Rugby League ladder with nine wins and five losses.

Why have they been so hard to beat?

"Teamwork," said Yass Magpies League Tag player-coach Farah Atallah.

"We've gelled really well as a team this year. Everyone listens to each other and is really comfortable with one another."

While they managed to score the second most points in the competition along with the Goulburn Bulldogs, their defence has actually helped them get to where they are.

Atallah said their camaraderie also contributed to their success.

"Our strengths are mainly how well our team bonds," she said.

"We're a really close bunch.

"I think that makes us play better as a team."

The experience levels for the Magpies may not be at an optimum, but that has encouraged those with plenty of games under their belt to be proactive.

"We've got some young girls in the team," Atallah said.

"As a result, people have actually stepped up and taken on a leadership role."

The first task for the Magpies is an elimination semi final against the Gungahlin Bulls on Saturday, August 24 at the Workers Arena.

Atallah said her side won't take them lightly even though the Bulls sit below them on the ladder.

"Gungahlin are a very strong team," she said.

"They are definitely competitive and they always have been.

"We just need to play it like every other game."

The main focus for the do or die clash is simple for the Magpies:

"Win."
