First day of the New Zealand Roller Derby Top10 Tournament brings fast-paced action and a final between the top North and South Island teams
Tomorrow’s tournament final between Dead End Derby Christchurch Rollergirls and Auckland’s Pirate City Roller Derby at 4pm will be a closely contested bout. Both teams are considered to be amongst the best in New Zealand. So the final will not be a roll-over by any means.

Last year, Pirate City Rollers were busy participating in an international tournament and so missed the Top 10 Champs. This year will see a big North-South battle that will be fast paced and keenly fought by these competitive leagues.

Saturday, the first day of the tournament had a gruelling schedule of 6 games in order to decide who would compete for the Cup and Shield Division of the New Zealand Roller Derby Top 10 Champs.

The final scores were:
Game 1: DD – Dunedin Derby 169, Moana Roller Derby 163
Game 2: Swamp City Roller Derby 218, Sulphur City Steam Rollers124
