XXIX Finals

posted 28 Jun 2019, 23:39 by Site Admin
The IGTWCC XXIX Group Rounds have now been completed, and the results and group tables have been updated.

Which means we move onto the finals next week, and all finals fixtures have been entered.

Please accept your final fixture as HERE soon as possible.

Here is just a quick reminder of the rules as we move into the knockouts;

After the group rounds the teams finish in the top 4 places, move forward to the knockout rounds, with the grand finals being in RD14 D1.

The top 2 teams in each group will earn home games in the 1st knockout round 1, but the 1st place team also earns a home fixture in the Quarter Finals, as a reward for topping their groups. Their opponents will be drawn at random from the teams who finished 3rd & 4th place.

After the Knockout Rd has been completed, the teams who finished in 1st Place in the group rounds, will still have a home fixture in the Quarter Finals, however their opponents will be selected at random and not follow a ladder system. 

All remaining fixtures will be selected at random, similar to the normal Blackout Rugby National Cup.

The Wooden Spoon knockouts will feature the teams that finish in 5th position in the group tables, and will be broken down into Gold, Silver and Bronze.

Tied Fixtures.
If after 80 minutes the scores are tied, the Blackout Rugby tie-breaking rules will be applied, which means there will be extra time followed by a kicking competition.
