Not to be a downer - but in the race for points in the TT comp the kiwis play 5 Aus teams - whilst the Aus teams play 5 kiwis.
Now the historical record will show that it’s likely one, if not two, kiwi teams could go undefeated. meaning an Aus team would need to go undefeated against 5 kiwi teams to make the final. am I reading this right???
As I read it, they count points from the previous domestic competition, so the NZ teams actually have it tougher. If you're the Highlanders, you have to play 4 NZ teams twice and 5 Aus teams once.
