The tournament was won by Griqualand West for the first time, who won three of their matches in the competition and drew the fourth.[1]

However, the winner of the first five tournaments, Western Province, did not participate in the 1899 event due to the impending Anglo-Boer War, nor did Transvaal. Only Border, Eastern Province, Griqualand West and Rhodesia took part.[2]
