Updated Playoff Rankings

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. Isn't Carnegie 6-2 because Teesside forfeited?

  3. Warwick Edinburgh and Gloucester all dont deserve post season ball. Andy Fuller sort it out

  5. how can Edinburgh face taking part? How can 4 teams get in on records based on playing 1 game against a top 4 opponent??

  6. Edinburgh have played 4 games against Championship playoff teams (Stirling and Glasgow). The only reason they're 2-4 is cancelled games. If you base those on previous fixtures they're 4-4. I agree it's ridiculous but take it out on the league not Edinburgh...
