Australia Bushrangers Take out Tightly Contested Test-Match

The Australian Bushrangers secured the overall victory in the final Test Match for 2016. The male divisions were closely contested across both senior and junior classes. The senior and junior women’s classes swung towards the Australian Bushrangers over the last weekend.

The two rounds held over the final weekend were very close in the senior men’s division. The final round round in the middle distance race was drawn, both teams locked on 26 points. However, the two point lead from Saturday’s Long Distance race to the Australian Elite Males was enough to secure a narrow win in this class.

In the junior division the New Zealand males built on their 2 point lead in the first round at the Sprint, to have an 18 point lead after a strong final showing in the last event of the three race series. The Australian junior women had a resounding victory to anchor an overall win to the Australian juniors.

Australia took out the Test Match overall winning back the Aspin-Key Trophy after NZ won the first Test Match earlier in the year held near Wellington.
