Unfortunately, the NZ team bowed out in the quarters with a 6-1 loss to Canada. The motion was “That we support paying compensation for injustices committed by past generations”. New Zealand debated very well and the debate was incredibly close.
A disappointing result for the team but they have done extremely well throughout the tournament and have plenty to be proud of. Hard luck – but also congratulations to the team for all of their hard work and great results to date.
In the semi-finals England defeated Wales and Canada defeated Singapore. They will meet in the Grand Final tomorrow.
At the Championship Dinner the Grand Final results will be announced as well as the top ten speakers. Fingers crossed for one or more Kiwis!
