Day 1 was all about the Dropknee division, four rounds were contested whilst a few of the first Open division heats took place too
Sammy Morretino dominated his heats posting the highest total score of the day, 15.26 during his heat in the third round. Sammy appears to be on track to claim his fourth world drop knee title. However Amaury Lavernhe came out the gates blazing through his heats. Iain Campbell was on fire too, and made everything look effortless. David Hubbard and Kawika Rohr-Kamai showed their dominance throughout their heats too.
At this early stage, it really looks like it’s defending dropknee world champion, Sammy Morretino’s, contest to loose. And he’s fired up.
Contestants will meet at 7:30am on Day 2 and a call will be made on the next steps of the contest. Either Dropknee Round 5 or the Mens Open Round 2.
