Finals series

For the final series, the team that finishes second played off at home against the team that finishes third, while the team that finishes first has the week off before playing the winner of 2nd v 3rd.[5] Southern qualified for the final series over Northern even though they ended up on equal points and Northern had the better goal difference due to head-to-head record, with Southern beating Northern 2–1 in the regular season. This meant they would face Auckland in Auckland, while Canterbury United Pride had the week off.[6]
