The “drop off” rule is to apply when a team gets to 5 tries in front. When a team gets to 8 tries up, a second player is “dropped off”. If the losing team were to score a try and get back within the 5 or 8 tries buffer, the player who had been “dropped off” can return to the field of play.

In the event of a tied final, extra time is played. The “Drop-Off” rule to apply, so every 2 minutes a player from both teams is taken from the field and not replaced until a “golden-try” is scored. If after 8 minutes a try has not been scored, it will be deemed a shared premiership.
