– The Super Heat winning team will be reflected as a WD in the league table and the loser as a LD.
– If a meeting is abandoned for any reason after the staging of heat 10, the scores are level and no more heats can take place (e.g. Super Heat), the match will be decided on countback of heat advantages (most 5-1s, most 4-2s etc). Winning team get 2 league points, losers 1 league point.

Aggregate Bonus Point
– When scores are tied for Aggregate Bonus Point then a Super Heat will be staged to determine the winner.
– If the second meeting is a draw and it creates an aggregate draw (eg. 45-45 followed by 45-45) then one Super Heat takes place which counts for not only to decide the meeting winner (2 league points for winner, 1 league point for loser), but also the aggregate bonus point.
– If aggregate scores are level but the second meeting has been abandoned then aggregate bonus point is given on countback of heat advantages (most 5-1s, most 4-2s etc) over the two meetings.

– The semi-final line-up is based on the final league table: 1st v 4th, 2nd v 3rd.

– In the event of a tie on aggregate in the semi-final or Grand Final, the outcome will be determined by the Super Heat Format.
