The top four teams go into a playoff (1st vs 4th and 2nd vs 3rd). It's very close between places 3-6 so we still have to perform to secure our place in the finals.
1st France 145pts
2nd Greece 126pts
3rd UN (us) 121pts
4th Japan 120pts
5th Swe/Nor 119pts
6th Canada 115pts
Our last three opponents are NA/Cascadia (8th), France (1st) and Greece (2nd) so it's going to be difficult for sure.
We need to secure a good points win vs Mexico in this current round to leave some space between us and 5th place.
Our nearest rivals have the following final four fixtures:
Greece - Balkans, Canada, USA, UN
Japan - NZ, Aus, Balkans, Canada
Swe/Nor - Den/Nor, Netherlands, Switz/Spain, Mexico/SA
Canada - France, Greece, Ireland, Japan
Swe/Nor have the easiest run to the line and will surely climb the table. Canada might do us a favour vs Japan (their own chances are slim as they face very tough oppo). I reckon it will come down to us having to beat Greece in the final fixture, it will be that close.
Hope the above raises your spirits and stirs your blood
