Neighbouring countries Australia and New Zealand went head-to-head in the Play Off stages at the Li-NING BWF World Junior Mixed Team Championships 2018 in Canada.

The tie got off to an emphatic start with a mixed doubles match that went the full distance. The three-game thriller was eventually won by Australia with a 22-20 decider, before New Zealand went on to take both Men's and Women's Singles matches. Australia fought valiantly in a must-win situation in the Men's Doubles, but New Zealand's Oscar Guo and Dacmen Vong managed to secure the overall win for New Zealand in three games.
