Table ranking rules

  • Four match points are awarded for a win.
  • Two match points are awarded for a draw.
  • A bonus match point is awarded to a team that scores four or more tries in a match or loses a match by seven points or fewer. If a team scores four tries in a match and loses by seven points or fewer, they are awarded both bonus points.
  • Three bonus match points are awarded to a team that wins all five of their matches (known as a Grand Slam). This ensures that a Grand Slam winning team always ranks over a team who won four matches in which they also were awarded four try bonus points and were also awarded two bonus points in the match that they lost.
  • Tiebreakers –
    • If two or more teams are tied on match points, the team with the better points difference (points scored less points conceded) is ranked higher.
    • If the above tiebreaker fails to separate tied teams, the team that scored the higher number of total tries in their matches is ranked higher.
    • If two or more teams remain tied for first place at the end of the championship after applying the above tiebreakers, the title is shared between them.

Fixtures[edit]

The fixtures were announced on 16 May 2017. The first game of the championship was a Friday night game between France and Wales.[1]
