National League team building points limit is 42.50

Top four teams progress to the play-offs (all play-off ties will be raced over two legs). The team finishing top gets to choose their opponents in the semi-finals. The winners from the two semi-finals then meet in a two-legged Grand Final to decide the National League Championship.

New League Points scoring system introduced.

15 metre Tactical Replacement rule has been removed. One Tactical Ride can still be used by a team losing by ten points or more and a second has been added which can be used if a team is losing by twelve points or more. A Tactical Ride cannot be used until heat five and is also not permitted in heat fifteen.
