Semi-finals and Final

The team seeded 2 will play the team seeded 3 at the home ground of the former. The winners of each of these fixtures will progress to the final. The final will be held at the home ground of the finalist team which finished with the highest seeding in the pool stages.

In the semi-finals and the Final, if after 40 minutes of play each way the scores are level, there shall be a five-minute break (where the teams and players shall remain on the pitch) and then a period of extra time shall begin between the teams of ten minutes each way, with a one-minute interval. If the scores remain equal after this period of extra-time then the winner will be the team which has scored the most tries in the game (including extra-time). If the scores are level and the number of tries scored is equal, then there shall be a place kick competition.
