Emirates Airline Dubai Rugby Sevens
Invitation Tournament Rugby
30 November – 2 December 2017
It is the responsibility of the Team Manager to ensure team members and team personnel are conversant with the Tournament Rules
Each competition will have a distinct tournament structure. Please refer to the competition specific information for further details.
2.1 Pool Stage Matches
The first round of games will be played in pools on a round-robin basis. For composition of pools please see competition specific information. Following the pool round there will be knock-out rounds.
2.1.1 Play will consist of matches between teams in the same pool on a round-robin basis. Pool matches will be seven (7) minutes each way with a one (1) minute half-time break.
2.1.2 All Pool Matches carry the following points:
• 3 points for a win
• 2 points for a draw
• 1 point for a loss
• 0 points for a no show, abandonment or referee disqualification
2.1.3 In the event of two or more teams being equal on competition points for any position in the pool table the higher placed team will be determined using the following sequence:
1) If two teams are involved and have played each other, the winning team will take the higher position. If more than two teams have equal points this rule will not apply.
2) The margin of points scored for and against a team in all pool matches shall be considered. The team with the highest positive margin of points shall be ranked higher in the pool table. In the event that the tie remains unsolved then;
3) The team that scores the most tries in all pool matches shall be ranked higher in the pool table. In the event that the tie remains unsolved then;
4) The team that scores the most points in all pool matches shall be ranked higher in the pool table. In the event that the tie remains unsolved then;
5) The team that concedes the least points in all pool matches shall be ranked higher in the pool table. In the event that the tie still remains unresolved then;
6) The winner will be decided by the toss of a coin between the Managers of the teams concerned.
2.2 Knock Out Stage Matches
Following the completion of the pool stage matches there will be knock-out finals stages. The draw will be based upon the team positions in the pool tables. For details on the knock-out stages please see the competition specific information.
2.2.1 All quarter-finals, semi-finals and finals will be played on a knock-out basis except for the International Invitation Men, International Invitation Women and International U19 Boys sections of the tournament which will be played in a similar format to the World Sevens Series matches (see tournament specific draw for details).
2.2.2 All quarter-final, semi-final and final games will be seven (7) minutes each way with a one (1) minute halftime break.
2.2.3 In the event of a match being drawn at the end of normal time (in the knock-out stages) extra time will be played, in five (5) minute periods until a winner is determined. There will be an interval of one (1) minute after full time has been declared then play shall commence with a coin-toss, the winner of which chooses either; which way to play or to kick-off the period of extra time. The first team to score will immediately be declared the winner and play will cease. After each five (5) minute period of extra time, teams will change ends, without stoppage, and resume play.
2.2.4 For all matches, should the Referee decide there is a clash of shirt colours the Referee will call both team captains together and toss a coin; the loser will change shirts.
