New Zealand Rugby has confirmed the draw for the NZ Barbarians U85 Club Cup.
The 2020 competition draw has been designed to ensure a fair and even competition, given the disruptions caused by COVID-19 to the club rugby season.
For the initial rounds, teams have been bracketed into Northern and Southern pools and rankings applied based on final positions in local club competitions.
The draw for the Quarter Finals will be conducted as a national draw in partnership with the NZ Barbarian Rugby Football Club. The Final is planned for the weekend of Saturday 7 November. A venue and kick-off time will be confirmed closer to the match.
