Groups

Each group will consist of 5 teams, (giving 8 group matches and 2 byes) based on each teams top 15 players average CSR (i.e. group 1 will consist of the top 5 teams with the highest average CSR). Groups 1-4 will play for the Cup, 5-8 the Plate, 9-12 the Bowl, 13-16 the Shield, 17-20 the Vase and 21-24 will play for the Plaque.

After the group rounds the teams finishing in the top four in each group will move forward to the knockout rounds, with the grand finals being in week 14. 

The teams that finish on top of the table in each group will earn home games in the knockout round and the quarter finals as a reward for topping their groups.

The teams that finish in 2nd place on the table in each group will earn home games in the knock-out round only, as a reward for coming 2nd.

Teams that finish 5th will play-off in a Wooden Spoon competition featuring all the teams that did not qualify for the regular finals. It will be in 3 levels; Gold, Silver & Bronze.

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.
