Men's

D1

The Red River Rugby Conference D1 clubs will play a home & away schedule.  As a courtesy to Little Rock (who was recently promoted to D1) a few of their travel matches have been moved to Dallas.

Playoffs & Seeding

If needed, the top two teams will have a playoff match to determine the overall winner of the division.

D2

The D1b teams have been absorbed into the D2 this year. D2 has two regions again this year, they are broken into their normal north and south areas.

Playoffs & Seeding

The top team from each sub-division as well as a 4th "Wildcard" team will progress to a single weekend playoff (semi-final and final at a neutral location) for the RRRC D2 Championship. The Wildcard slot will be taken by the team that finishes in 2nd place in its area and has the highest percentage of maximum league points available when compared against the other 2 areas.

Seeding for the semi-finals will be based on the same points percentage, with #1 v #4 and #2 v #3, although the wildcard team will not play against an opponent from its own sub-division. If this happens, the format would change to #1 v #3 and #2 v #4. In the event of a tie in points percentage for seeding, the tie breaker would be based on average points difference per game, followed by average number of tries per game.
