The Girls competition is structured differently to the Boys with the top two teams in each pool heading straight to the semi-finals and therefore automatic entry to National’s in October.

The next two teams in each pool enter play-offs for places 5-8 with only three of the four earning a spot.

The make up of the two pools has been a topic of discussion this week with the top three teams from the Premier competition, Auckland Girls Grammar, Mt Albert Girls Grammar and Westlake Girls all sitting in Pool B.

With Mt Albert suffering defeats at the hands of Westlake and Auckland Girls their route to the Nationals will be via the 5-8 classification games.

The final round of pool games remain to be played on Friday morning with the overnight standings as below.
