  • League points shall be awarded based on the results of each Pool Match and also each Cross-Pool Match (this is the same principle that we used for the Derby Rounds in the 2019-20 Premiership Rugby Cup);
  • As all team will play a total of 4 Pool (including Cross-Pool Matches) Match;
  • League points follow the normal rules, 4 for a win, 2 for a draw, 0 for a loss, and Bonus Points for 4 tries or more and/or losing by 7 or less match points;

 

  • On completion of the pool and Cross-Pool Matches each Club will be ranked within each pool on the following basis:
    • The Club with the greatest League Points will be placed above a Club with lesser League Points; or
    • If League Points are equal it will be the Club with the most wins; or
    • If the number of wins is also equal it will be the Club with the greatest points difference; or
    • If the points difference is also equal it will be the Club with the greatest points for; or
    • If the points for is also equal it will be the Club who has scored the higher number of tries; or
    • If the number of tries is also equal it will be the Club who has the least number of red cards; or
    • If the number of red cards is equal it will be the Club who scored the greater number of points scored in the match between the two Clubs; or
    • If the number of points scored in the match between the two Club is equal, the Tournament Director shall conduct a draw of the relevant Clubs, being that the first Club drawn shall be deemed the higher-ranked Club.

 

For avoidance of doubt, the results from the Cross-Pool Derby Match will be included in the calculations to determining rankings set out in Regulation 4.8 and 4.9.

 

  • The three pool winners (ranked 1, 2 and 3) and the highest ranked second place team (ranked 4) will qualify for the knock-out stage. These four semi-finalists will be decided by reference to the following criteria:
  • If two or more pool winners (or two or more second place teams in respect of determining the 4th ranked team) are equal on League Points, then the order in which they are ranked will be determined on the following basis:
    • If League Points are equal it will be the Club with the most wins; or
    • If the number of wins is also equal it will be the Club with the greatest points difference; or
    • If the points difference is also equal it will be the Club with the greatest points for; or
    • If the points for is also equal it will be the Club who has scored the higher number of tries; or
    • If the number of tries is also equal it will be the Club who has the least number of red cards; or
    • If the number of red cards is equal the Tournament Director shall conduct a draw of the relevant Clubs, being that the first Club drawn shall be deemed the higher ranked Club.

 

  • The knock-out stage shall be divided into two semi-final Matches and a final Match.
  • The semi-final Matches will be knock-out, each played over one Match
  • The semi-final Matches shall comprise:
    • semi-final 1       1st ranked Club v 4th ranked Club
    • semi-final 2       2nd ranked Club v 3rd ranked Club

 

  • The first Club listed in each of the semi-final matches shall be the Home Club.
  • The winners of the two semi-final Matches will proceed to the cup final.  The cup final will be played at a venue of the highest ranked finalist Club based upon the rankings determined in accordance with the principles above.
