Champions Cup Last 16 Extra Time Protocol & Quarter-Final Permutations

Overtime.

Ahead of this weekend’s decisive matches in the Heineken Champions Cup Round of 16 2nd leg – here is a reminder of the extra time protocol.

House of Rugby is back with a brand new URC show – hosted by RugbyLAD founder Jason Hennessy, Ireland international Megan Williams and Olympic sevens star, Greg O'Shea. Follow and subscribe to it HERE.

If the aggregate scores are tied at full time in a Heineken Champions Cup 2nd leg match, then 20 minutes (two periods of 10 minutes) of extra time will be played.

If at the end of extra time the aggregate scores are still level in a Heineken Champions Cup 2nd leg match, then the winner will be the club that has scored the most tries in both legs of the Round of 16 (including extra time).

If the teams are still level on points and on tries at the end of extra time, then the winners will be determined by a placekick competition.

Also, see below for a reminder of the quarter-final permutations.
