One bonus point (BT) will be awarded to any team that scores 3 or more tries than their opponent in a single game, regardless of the final result. A bonus point (BL) may also be awarded to the losing side if the margin of loss is 7 points or less. Only the losing side can achieve the maximum 2 bonus points.

When two or more teams are tied on total points, the higher-ranked team will be determined by the following criteria in order:
- Points Difference
- Total wins in current IGTWCC season
- Bonus tries (BT)
- Bonus loss points (BL)
