#spoileralert: Not very super, yet.

 

(Hear us out.)

 

There are two things that are established facts about Point 9 Analytics.

Those reasons?

We got some sneak peeks into the conditioning, form and strategies of the Franchises, we saw players eyeing each other up and we reckon some demons were laid to rest.

Being the last 'big one' before the World Cup,  the Quad Series had a lot to offer. With upset wins, a double extra time match and the overall winner being determined by goal difference, it didn't disappoint.
