Heading into the semi-Finals today, Vic Navy are the only undefeated side in the U20 Men's division with Jock Perry enjoying his best game of the tournament yesterday. His form combined with the play of Dejan Vasiljevic and Jack White, they will be a handful for NSW today who will rely on the likes of Matthew Kenyon, Kieran Hayward and Oliver Robilliard on the glass.

ACT and WA will face off earlier in the day with the winner to take on fifth placed Queensland before Vic White and SA round out the day.

In the U20 Women, a win over Vic White yesterday secured Vic Navy's unbeaten run as they reached the century mark for the third time in the tournament. South Australia also hit 100 points in a win over Queensland to set up a Semi-Final against Vic White while Vic Navy will play host state, Queensland.

WA will face off against NSW on Saturday as the West Australians search out their first win.

A three-way tie atop the Ivor Burge Men ladder has set up a Semi-Final between South Australia and New South Wales and an interstate rivalry match-up between Vic Metro and Vic Country.

WA will then be chasing a maiden victory in their Semi-Final against ACT with the winner to play Tasmania who finished fifth despite a 20-point loss to New South Wales on the last day.

In the Ivor Burge Women, a big win for New South Wales over South Australia pulled them even with Vic Metro at the top of their ladder, ensuring two Semi-Finals clashes today between Vic Country/New South Wales and South Australia/Vic Metro.
