What if the Semi-Finals are drawn?

Later today the two Aviva Premiership Rugby semi-finals will take place at Franklin’s Gardens, Northampton and The Recreation Ground, Bath. Should either or both matches be tied at 80 minutes this is what will happen…

Extra Time

In the Aviva Premiership Rugby semi-finals and final, if scores are level after 40 minutes each way there shall be an immediate period of extra time between the teams of 10 minutes each way.

If the scores are still tied after extra time then the winner will be the team which has scored the most tries in the game (including extra time).

If scores are still equal then there will be a place kick competition to determine the winner.

Place Kicking Competition

A coin toss will determine at which end the competition will be at and another coin toss will determine which team goes first or second.

Each team will nominate three kickers on the pitch at the end of extra time, designated kicker 1, kicker 2 and kicker 3.

Each kicker will take two kicks apiece in the following order:

  • Kicker 1 from each team will take a kick from in front of the posts on the 22m line.
  • Kicker 2 from each team will take a kick 15m in from the right touch line on the 22m line.
  • Kicker 3 from each team will take a kick 15m in from the left touch line on the 22m line.
  • Kicker 1 from each team will take a kick from in front of the posts on the 40m line.
  • Kicker 2 from each team will take a kick 15m in from the right touch line on the 40m line.
  • Kicker 3 from each team will take a kick 15m in from the left touch line on the 40m line.

If still tied there will be a “sudden death competition” from in front of the posts on the 40m line.
