MEN'S

Day 3 saw the last games of pool play and the first games of power pool play in the men's division. Pool play went largely as expected but power pools produced some extremely close games. Australia went down to Japan on universe, and Singapore squeaked past Ireland also. Plenty of tight matches, with each team having two more power pool games tomorrow.


The top two teams in Power Pool E and F go straight to quarters, while the bottom two teams in Power Pool E and F play prequarters against the top two teams from Power Pool G and H. 
This means that tomorrow's games will determine these matchups and the better your placing in Power Pools, the easier run matchups you'll get in bracket play.

  • Singapore 12 - 11 Colombia

  • USA 15 - 1 New Zealand

Best Watch


Australia v Canada Women's


Canada will be looking to defend their undefeated streak before playing USA in the afternoon. Australia are looking for a win to force a three way tie, and lock down a spot in semis. These teams are both incredibly athletic, with a good mix of powerful throwers, big deep receivers, and crafty utilities that can find the gaps between both.
