It’s the final round of games before teams head into the holiday break – see where every team is playing
The McDonald’s Thomson Trophy Competition moved into its second phase last week, with the top six teams beginning to battle it out for playoff seeds, and the bottom six teams having their eyes on the two playoff spots available to their pool.
