Matches are all to be 7-minute halves with a 1-minute half time.
During the Pool round, a match tied at the end of normal time shall remain tied.
During the Knock-Out round, in the event of a match being tied at the end of normal time, extra time will be played until a winner is determined. Extra time will be in periods of five minutes. After each period the teams will change ends without an interval. In extra time the Team which scores first will immediately be declared the winner without further play. The Team that first kicked off will do so again in the first period of extra time, and subsequent kick-offs will alternate between the two sides.
All players, coaches, and spectators must abide by the NCR Code of Conduct
Determining Pool Table Standings
Position in the pool competition table shall be determined by win percentage. Should teams end pool play tied in win percentage, the first tiebreak will be the head-to-head results, followed by point differential and tries scored.
