Game 9 between the Southern Stars and Melbourne Dragons was replaced with an exhibition game between the Dragons and a team of South Australian Selects. The Dragons won the game 1-0. No reason was given for the change in schedule however the best guess is that the Stars had to leave the tournament early. So as a result we will show the game as a 5-0 forfeit in favour of the Dragons and will reflect this in the standings.
