Due to some disagreements over the last couple of seasons the NDBSA Committee has determined that the order of play for the finals will be draw out of the hat and each match goes on as soon as any table becomes available just as in the group stages. As always home teams get the right to choose which tables the first 2 home side players play on. Home teams mark matches except when it’s a 3 table venue and in that instance the away player/s not playing should assist with marking. All five players from each team need to be in attendance at start times unless approval obtained from both captains. Player cigarette breaks are not to be taken mid-match.
