What happens if the game is level after 80 minutes?

In the event of a drawn match at the end of normal time during the URC knockout stage, extra time of 10 minutes each way will be played. If the scores remain tied at the end of extra time then the referee will conduct a place-kick competition to determine the winner. Each team will select three kickers who each take two kicks at goal, giving each team a total of six kicks at goal. Each kicker has one minute to strike the ball and the kicks will take place from six designated marks between the 22 metre and 10m lines. It will go to sudden death if the score is level after each team has taken six kicks. All sudden death kicks will take place from the centre of the 10m line.
