All is in readiness for the medal games at this year’s tournament following the conclusion of the group games for the women and Semi-Finals for the men.
For the Ivor Burge women, undefeated Victoria will take on NSW Country in the gold medal playoff at 8am.
The Vics will take confidence they can claim their third straight Championship after defeating NSW Country by 31 points earlier in the week on Thursday.
The bronze medal playoff will see ACT, who finished with a 3-2 record, battle NSW Metro.
In the Ivor Burge men, Victoria are chasing an incredible 15th straight Championship at 10am when they host South Australia in a replay of last year’s gold medal game while Tasmania will meet Japan two hours earlier in the bronze medal playoff.
For the Under-20 women, Victoria have also advanced to the gold medal game unbeaten at 12pm.
They took on NSW in their opening game of the tournament, succeeding 84-43, so NSW will need to find something special to prevail this afternoon.
South Australia impressed throughout the group stage, finishing with a 4-2 record, and they will battle Western Australia (2-4) for bronze at 2pm.
The tournament concludes with the Under-20 men’s gold medal game at 2pm between Victoria, who were too good for Tasmania in today’s Semi-Final, and Western Australia who lit up NSW from beyond the arc.
That pits Tasmania against NSW in the bronze medal game at 12pm.
Don’t forget every bronze and gold medal game will be streamed live and free via Playsight tomorrow via this link from 8am.
