International Cup 2014

With the last game of Round 3 completed tonight we can reveal the preliminary finishing positions and which teams go to the top 4, which to Division 1 and the remainder to Division 2.  Please note that we stress at this early stage these ladders are our own calculations and official confirmation is of course by the AFL.

The Women's is straight forward and only goes to finals after 5 rounds (4 matches each).  But the Men started divided into 3 pools, with the complication being that the top 4 that go through to the semi-finals after 3 rounds are the top of each pool and then the next best based on combining all the teams - hence we've also shown a Combined ladder.  That also determines the teams that make what the AFL has called Division 1, i.e. teams 5 - 12, and Division 2, i.e. teams 13 to 18.

Our expectation is that the 4 nations through to the top level men's semi-finals are: Ireland, South Africa, New Zealand and Papua New Guinea.

Teams into Division 1 (the second tier) should be: Canada, Tonga, Nauru, Fiji, USA, Great Britain, Pakistan, France.

The remaining team go into Division 3 (third tier): Sweden, Japan, China, Finland, India, Indonesia.
