Regional matches need to be concluded by 11th November for Division 2 and 4th November for Division 3 with the winning teams from each region being invited to play in a final series to determine the Division Champions. The final round-robin series will be at CNSW HQ at Mackey Park, Tempe (Sydney) 16th-17th November (Division 2) and 9th-10th November (Division 3).
