It’s the final day of the under-19s national championships and there are three teams left in each competition – the NSW men and women, the Queensland men and women, South Australia in the women and the ACT in the mens.
Queensland are already into both grand finals and it will be a huge day with both the Elinor McKenzie Shield and Nox Bailey Shield to be decided.
The NSW men and Queensland women finished the preliminary rounds undefeated but we all know that means nothing in the finals with one game deciding the champions of each tournament. Queensland women carried it through to the final, meaning NSW will have to face South Australia for a place in the Grand Final. The Queensland men gave NSW its first loss of the competition with a 12-7 win in the semi-final.
NSW are the defending women’s champions while Queensland were the 2017 winners of the men’s competition.
Following today’s results in the women’s, Victoria finished fourth, the ACT finished fifth and Western Australia sixth, while in the men’s fourth place went to Victoria and Western Australia was in fifth.
The final day of action starts with preliminary finals starting with the women’s at 10am, before men’s prelim at 12.30pm. Then we have the grand finals starting with the women at 3pm and finishing with the men’s final at 5.30pm before the trophy presentation at the game’s completion.
