The table is laid for an epic showdown – New South Wales and Queensland in the men’s Interstate Series final.

Queensland fought off an early scare today at The Brisbane Golf Club, eventually overpowering the Northern Territory 6-5.0.5 after the underdogs looked a chance at halfway.

That win booked the hosts into the afternoon decider against their arch enemy, who have the advantage of both winning the round-robin phase and a bye this morning to leave them as fresh as possible.

With eight matches in the final, the undefeated Blues need only to win four points to be crowned champion.

Queensland’s win made the other contests moot, but it didn’t appear that way to the plucky West Australian team who fought back from deficits in all seven matches to topple defending champion Victoria.

WA had been disappointed with patches of its earlier form, but made amends today with some superb golf up and down the order in the closing holes to grab a 4.5-2.5 win over the Vics.

Victoria finished third overall, on match differential over WA, after each team finished with three wins and three losses.

Tasmania stunned South Australia 4.5-2.5 with great wins in the first four matches out, but couldn’t quite overhaul SA on the final table.

It was a flat finish for the SA men after a promising start to the week, with only match differential keeping them fifth.

Northern Territory finished seventh without a contest win, but in just its second year of competition, showed a far greater degree of competitiveness throughout many matches.
