      Okay, it’s a bit late for a genuine competition, but just for a bit of added interest, you can have a go at predicting some results. We’ll go in stages, so you have to remember to check back on here during the tournament.

      First off, see if you can predict the order in each of the four first-round groups…

      Group A
      Australia
      Fiji
      Tonga
      Zimbabwe

      Group B
      Barbados
      England
      Malawi
      Scotland

      Group C
      Jamaica
      South Africa
      Sri Lanka
      Wales

      Group D
      New Zealand
      Singapore
      Trinidad & Tobago
      Uganda

            For me it’s:

            Group A
            Australia; Zimbabwe; Tonga; Fiji

            Group B
            England; Malawi; Scotland; Barbados

            Group C
            Jamaica; Sth Africa; Wales; Sri Lanka

            Group D
            NZ; Uganda; T & T; Singapore

            And I’m going to go out on a limb here and predict my overall winner – Jamaica

                      Thank for this Ian. Have to admit I haven’t watched that much netball this year but here it goes…

                      Group A:
                      Australia
                      Fiji
                      Tonga
                      Zimbabwe

                      Group B:
                      England
                      Malawi
                      Scotland
                      Barbados

                      Group C:
                      Jamaica
                      South Africa
                      Wales
                      Sri Lanka

                      Group D:

                        Nobody got the First Stage 100% right. Jinxibo, StatsNerd21, Guyza and myself were close. Jinxibo did the hard part of correctly picking Zimbabwe to come last in Group A, but then got Fiji and Tonga around the wrong way!

                          Here are the groups for the next stage. See if you can predict the order. But as you can see, in Groups F & G, some countries carry forward points from teams in their group that they’ve already played. In Group E it’s simply a group of 4 to decide who finishes 13th to 16th.

                          Group F
                          Australia . 4 pts
                          Tonga . 2 pts
                          Fiji . 0 pts
                          England . 4 pts
                          Malawi . 2 pts
                          Scotland . 0 pts

                          Group G
                          Jamaica . 4 pts
                          South Africa . 2 pts
                          Wales . 0 pts
                          New Zealand . 4 pts
                          Uganda . 2 pts
                          Trinidad & Tobago . 0 pts

                          Group E
                          Zimbabwe
                          Barbados
