    Thanks for the updates. Much appreciated. Loved your lists you posted yesterday with original seedlings vs actual final pool placings. Brilliant.

    Even though there is a new format in place to overcome seeding issues it looked like the pools were poorly done with all those very strong teams ending up in pool A of the boys AA competition. And then some other pools that were clearly much easier. Would be interesting if you wrote an article on how those pools were out together. Just an idea!
