The Celtic League will set the trend when it introduces the exciting initiative of rugby's version of soccer's "Golden Goal" to decide any tied matches in the knock-out stages of the tournament.

The "Golden Point" will operate with immediate effect and will initially be used to settle any tied quarter-final at the end of the month. Following discussions with their broadcasting partners, the Celtic League Association have amended the tournament regulations regarding tied matches in ALL the knock-out stages. In the event of tied matches in the 2002 / 2003 tournament, and future quarter-finals, semi-finals and finals of the Celtic League, the following criteria will apply to determine the winner:

a) The first team to score ("golden point") during extra time that shall not exceed 10 minutes (five minutes each way)

b) The team who has scored most tries in regular time (80 minutes) of the tied match

c) In the quarter-finals and semi-finals the away team

In the Celtic League final the winner will be determined by a) followed by b) above. If still unresolved the winner will be:

d) The team with the fewer red cards over the knock-out stages

e) The team with the fewer yellow cards over the knock-out stages

f) Toss of a coin
