The inaugural LMS Super Series event took place over the Australia Day long weekend (Jan 26-28, 2019) at Centennial Park in central Sydney. 139 of the best LMS players from across New South Wales were declared eligible for the draft in December 2018, before being drafted into 6 sides by their Team Owners. A thrilling group stage saw it all come down to the final games.
In Pool A, all 3 teams tied on 12 points, with East Coast Whales topping the group on NRR and Central Coast securing their spot by virtue of a 0.077 NRR advantage over the Parramatta Bluetongues (this equates to a 3 run difference over the 2 group games).
Pool B was not quite as close with Illawarriors topping the group on 18 points, Sydney City in 2nd on 10 points and Western Tigers on 8 points, but it all came down to the final game, Sydney City scraping a losing bonus point to jump ahead of the Tigers on points.
The semi-finals saw two fantastic matches on a pitch that had seen over 2 days of cricket and tested the skill and tactics of all the players.
