In Case Of A Tie: Extra Time & Place Kicking Competition Details For PRO14 Semi-Finals


In the event of a tie at full time in either Guinness PRO14 semi-final this weekend, extra-time will be played, consisting of two periods, each of 10 minutes. If the score is still tied after extra-time, the team that has scored the most tries in the match will be deemed the winner.

If the teams are still tied on points and tries at the end of extra-time then the winner will be determined by a Place Kick Competition.

In the event that a Place Kick Competition is required, each team will nominate three goalkickers who will take six place kicks between them from different positions along the 22 metre and 10-metre lines.

The team with the most place kicks scored will be the winner. If the Teams are tied at the end of their six kicks, then sudden death will apply.

Only players in the playing area at the final whistle of extra-time may be nominated for the Place Kick Competition.

No substituted players or players who have been shown a red card may take part at any time including any player who has received a yellow card and who remains in the sin bin at the time of the final whistle of extra-time.
