In the case of equality at any stage of the Season, positions at that stage of the season shall be determined firstly by the number of wins achieved and then on the basis of match points differential. A Club with a larger number of wins shall be placed higher than a Club with the same number of league points but fewer wins.
If Clubs have equal league points and equal number of wins then a Club with a larger difference between match points "for" and match points "against" shall be placed higher in the Premiership League than a Club with a smaller difference between match points "for" and match points "against".
Should two Clubs have the same number of league points and the same match points difference, the Club having scored more match points "for" shall be placed higher in the Premiership League than the Club having the lesser number of match points "for".
If the above does not establish different Premiership League positions then the Club in the higher position shall be the Club that has its registered postcode furthest to the South.
I liked this explanation on the Wasps Message Board on what happens in the AP if Newcastle and Wasps end up on the same points. Tounge firmly in cheek as far as last paragraph is concerned - or is it?...
