Match play will continue until all available finals positions are filled. If the time allotted for match play expires prior to filling all finals positions, the remaining positions will be filled based upon rankings tabulated at the conclusion of the final match play round.
Top 12 go to ‘A’ finals, next 8 go to ‘B’ finals.
