All games on TV ONE will also be screening live on tvnz.co.nz, and afterwards will be available to view OnDemand.

TV ONE will have a daily Round Up show of all the action which will air on weekdays from 4.30 to 5.30pm, and on the weekends from 5.00pm until 6.00pm. This will cover all games in the tournament.
