- Firebirds become first to secure top three spot -
Ford Trophy frontrunners the Wellington Firebirds became the first team to lock in a top three qualifying spot after a tight win over Canterbury.
Whether the Firebirds will proceed direct to the Ford Trophy Grand Final is yet to be determined, however. Both the Otago Volts (22 points) and Northern Districts (18 points) remain capable of overtaking them, a total of 10 points (including bonus points) up for grabs in the last two rounds before playoffs.
