Are the 6's results a good predictor for the 7's?

To see if there's a link between success in the 6's and 7's we've looked at the 2016 Super Nationals, 2016 WINA Indoor Netball World Cup and the 2015 Junior Nationals. Let's start with the 2016 Super Nationals.
2016 Super Nationals
Queensland won four of the 6's titles in Mackay earlier this year and NSW took home three trophies.
Queensland then went on to win another five titles in the 7's.
It seems pretty conclusive so far! The only division not won by the same state was the Open Ladies.
2016 WINA World Cup
2015 Junior Nationals
There was no 6's competition at the 2015 Junior Nationals, but perhaps we can still use the Grand Final winners from last year to predict this year's winners.
It's hard to say whether winning the 6's necessarily means a win in the 7's and so with the above factored in we've made some educated predictions.
|Division||6's Winner||2015 Winner||7's Prediction|
|U13 Ladies||QLD Sparks||QLD Sparks||QLD Sparks|
|U15 Ladies||NSW Waratahs||NSW Waratahs||NSW Waratahs|
|U17 Ladies||QLD Heat||NSW Waratahs||NSW Waratahs|
|U17 Mixed||SA Crowns||QLD Flames||VIC Steel|
All will be decided on Saturday and if you can't make it Icon Arena, then you can watch along on the live streams
