Clinching Scenarios

  • Both Rugby ATL and Rugby New York can clinch a home semifinal. The team accumulating the most table points this weekend will host. If they finish level on points, total point differential from all matches will determine the host. Entering Round 18, Rugby ATL has a vastly superior point differential (102 compared to RNY’s 18).
