Sydney did well breaking the top two teams and 3 overall (Oxford also broke 3).

North America dominate with 14 teams. Australia/New Zealand have 9, Ireland/UK 8 and Europe 1. Earlier today some American coaches and judges were predicting the reverse and that Ireland/UK would break around 16.

The highest points were 22 with three teams on that. The cutoff was 18 points with ten teams breaking on that. No info on how many missed it on speaks
