Competition Rules

The teams are divided into pools based on Tuscaloosa finish with some adjustments so that teams aren't in pools similar to the prior tournament. If a team had multiple entries in Tuscaloosa, only the highest finishing team counted towards rankings.

Teams play a round-robin within the pool. Points are awarded in each pool —3 for a win, 2 for a draw, 1 for a loss, 0 for a no-show. In case teams are tied after pool play, the tiebreakers are:

  1. Head-to-head result between the tied teams.
  2. Difference in points scored and allowed.
  3. Difference in tries scored and allowed.
  4. Points scored during pool play.
  5. Coin toss.
