Secondary School Girls are already into their quarter-final, semi-final and final stages. Premier-1 Boys are playing quarter-finals this week. Other grades will get to these stages over the next 2 or 3 weeks.
There are different processes for determining the winner of a tied quarter-final, semi-final or final fixture depending on whether it is a WRFU Club Rugby fixture or a Wellington Secondary School fixture.
There are no circumstances where extra-time will be played in a Secondary School Grade.
Wellington Secondary School Rugby
You need to record:
- who scored the first points in the match
- who scored the first try in the match
- the number of tries each team scores in the match
25. DRAWN SEMI FINALS & FINALS
In all WSSRU semi-final and final matches, if the scores are tied at the end of normal time, there is no extra time (IRB Under 19 rule). Accordingly, where at the end of ordinary time the scores are tied, in order, as defined below, the procedures to determine the winner shall be:
i. The team scoring the most tries in the match. If still tied
ii. The team scoring the first try in the match. If still tied
iii. The team scoring the first points in the match If still tied
iv. The team having the higher point’s differential in Championship round robin play.
v. If still equal then a coin toss
Part iv) and part v) of the “drawn match resolution procedures” outlined below are NOT the responsibility of the referee! College Sport Wellington will manage these issues in the unlikely event that stages iv) and/or v) need to be applied.
Under no circumstances should you conduct a coin toss to resolve a drawn Secondary School match unless you are specifically directed to do so by a member of College Sport Wellington!
