Update on RRRC/TOLA 7s – Jul 19

A few more weeks have gone by in the 7s season and we wanted to give an update on how things are looking.

There are two TOLA tournaments and the Championship left and only one RRRC tournament left. At Hell or High Water 7s, ARPTC Blue took the title and with that win they also qualified for the USA Rugby National Club 7s Championships. As our women get two seeds, their second team, ARPTC White has also qualified for Nationals.

On the men’s side, NOLA is in the pole position with Reds and Huns in the hunt. Red River Rampage 7s on July 27 will be a take all for the winner and a spot at the USA Rugby National Club 7s.

On the TOLA side of Hell or Highwater 7s, Huns 2 took the overall title and sits at 16 points. Dallas 2 has 11 points and the Gorillas are in third with 9 points. 

For the women, the Lady Quins are on top right now with 13 points, followed closely by Austin with 12 points and the Riveters have 10 points.

RRRC 7s Tournament Tie Breakers

If two or more teams that have played in a minimum two qualifying tournaments with eligible and verified rosters should end up tied in RRRC qualifying points at the conclusion of the third and final qualifying tournament, the same tie breaking criteria used to determine tournament seeding and results will be used in order to determine the final placement of teams. This placement will be used in order to determine which two women’s sides and one men’s side will earn the right to represent the RRRC in the national championship competition. The Tournament match result tie breakers are:

  • (Head to Head) If at the conclusion of the pool stage two Teams are equal on competition points for any position in the pool, such position in the pool competition table will be determined on the result of the Match between the two equal Teams. The Team that won that Match shall be deemed to have finished higher in the pool competition table. If the Head to Head match is a draw or multiple teams are equal in Head to Head competition then the following process shall be used to determine the placing.
  • (Head to Head – Delta Score) The margin of points scored for and against a Team in only those matches between the tie breaker teams shall be considered. The Team with the highest positive margin of points shall be ranked higher in the pool competition table: If the tie remains unresolved then:
  • (Head to Head – Delta Tries) The margin of tries scored for and against a Team in only those matches between the tie breaker teams shall be considered. The Team with the highest positive margin of tries shall be ranked higher in the pool competition table: If the tie remains unresolved then:
  • (Head to Head – Total Points Scored) The Team that has scored the highest number of points in only those matches between the tie breaker teams shall be ranked higher in the pool competition table: If the tie still remains unresolved then;
  • (Total point Differential) The Team that has achieved the greatest point differential in ALL their pool Matches shall be ranked higher in the pool competition table: if the tie still remains unresolved then:
  • (Total Points For) The Team that has scored the most points in ALL their pool Matches shall be ranked higher in the pool competition table: if the tie still remains unresolved then:
  • (Total Points Against) The Team that has allowed the least amount of points scored against them in ALL their pool Matches shall be ranked higher in the pool competition table: if the tie still remains unresolved then:
  • (Tournament Seed) The Team with the higher seed entering the tournament shall be ranked higher in the pool competition table: if the tie still remains unresolved, then:
  • (Total Tries Scored) The Team that has scored the highest number of tries in ALL their pool Matches shall be ranked higher in the pool competition table: if the tie still remains unresolved then:
  • (Total Score) The Team that has scored the highest points in ALL their pool Matches shall be ranked higher in the pool competition table: if the tie still remains unresolved then:
  • (Coin toss) The tie will be resolved by the toss of a coin between the Team Managers concerned by the RRRC Sevens Director or RRRC representative.
