2018 ICNZ Club Nationals: Day 1 Results

Day 1 of the Club Nationals Tournament from Christchurch has concluded, with a number of teams making some strong impressions and others with work to do. Here are the results and standings from each grade:

Premier Men’s:

Teams were split in groups of three in the nine-team competition (groups A, B and C), playing each other once. The end of the first group stage derived a second break-down of groups, with the first, second and third placed teams from each group being allocated into groups D, E and F respectively, with those matches to take place tomorrow.

After the second round of group matches, the teams will be ranked 1st through to 8th based on points derived from matches, which forms the basis for the quarter-finals on Saturday morning. The 8th placed side will face off against the 9th placed team tomorrow night for the last spot in the quarter-finals. Hutt Valley, St Lukes and Action Waitakere all took the honours in their group with Action Hornby, Action Hamilton and Howzat all a win behind.
