Groups

Each group will consist of 6 teams, (giving 10 group matches) based on world ranking (ie group 1 will consist of the top 6 ranked teams in the world, who have registered to play).

The top 4 groups will play for the cup, next 4 the plate, next 4 the bowl and the last 4 groups will play for the shield.

After the group rounds the top 4 teams in each group will move forward to the knockout rounds, with the grand finals being in week 14. (The top 2 teams will have home matches in the 1st knockout Round and all following finals will be a random draw)

During the group rounds, the teams will be awarded 4 points for a win, 2 points for a draw, and a possible bonus point (BT) for scoring 4 tries or more, regardless of the results, and a bonus point (BL) for losing by 7 points or less.

To access the groups, click on the group shirts opposite. Once the group page opens (for example Groups 1 to 4), select your group by clicking the tabs at the bottom of the spreadsheet.
