Current Playoff Seedings


Following the release of the new tie-breakers and last weekend’s fixtures, we can finally reveal the playoff seedings for the championship and plate playoffs.

First thing to remember is that the tie-breakers state WLT record percentage, not record. Therefore, a 7-0 team can be ranked higher than an 8-0 team due to the fact they’ve both got a 1.000% record. The next tie-breaker is the average points conceded against the top four teams before the average points conceded per game regular season game.

Therefore, using these tie-breakers, we can reveal the rankings are as follow. Remember, the top four teams earn byes.

Also remember that it goes – seven conference champions plus the top five second place records go to the champ playoffs. The next two second placed teams plus the third placed teams and the three best records from the fourth seeds go to the challenge trophy playoffs.

    1. Conference standings. Edinburgh are 3rd and NTU are 4th in their respective conferences.

  4. Dont Glasgow still have to play Stirling again this weekend? if so that will change the seedings drastically.

    1. All games have to be resolved before the playoff seedings are determined. So these are subject to radical change. It's an interesting exercise but this is what the playoffs would look like based on results NOW, not what they will be based on.

  6. Why are Kingston 0.857 7th and not 9th behind Sheffield and Loughborough 0.875?
