The points scoring system for the Provincial League Championship is the same as the AIB League.

City of Derry came through a play-off against Armagh in front of a few thousand spectators last night to take the Ulster qualifying spot. Both sides had finished the season with 17 wins and 83 points in the Kukri Ulster Qualifying League.
Seapoint topped the Leinster League with points to spare, having won 13 of their 14 games. They notched up 36 tries in the regulation phase of the season, making them a force to be reckoned with.
In Connacht, Monivea have gone undefeated in the Junior League and have scored 58 tries to finish ahead of Sligo and Ballina in the pecking order.
