The Shield



  • Pinched the below graphic from the BOP site. Quite interesting as I've never been bothered to work out when/where we might end up with a shield challenge, but this makes it easy.

    It's looking pretty unlikely that we get a challenge this season. For that to happen we need one of the following scenarios to play out.

    I'm thinking option B is the most likey, followed closely by A, with C almost zero chance.

    A:
    Canterbury beat Otago.
    Canterbury beat Southland.
    Counties beat Canterbury.
    Counties beat Hawkes Bay.
    We beat Counties.

    B:
    Otago beat Canterbury.
    Manawatu beat Otago.
    Manawatu beat BOP.
    We beat Manawatu.

    😄
    Southland beat Canterbury
    Southland beat Auckland
    Southland beat Manawatu
    Wellington beat Southland
    We beat Wellington
