The current Guinness PRO14 season has been suspended in response to the evolving COVID-19 outbreak.

The PRO14 is an international league. Cross border travel is inevitable and that brings with it unique challenges. With governments in Italy and Ireland already putting in place clear directives and restrictions around public activities and travel, the decision to suspend the competition is appropriate. It is in the best interests of everyone that games are not played at this time. The suspension has been directed by the board of Celtic Rugby DAC and will be remain under constant review.

David Jordan, Tournament Director PRO14 Rugby, said: "We have made this decision with everyone’s welfare foremost in our minds. With an evolving situation in the five countries that take part in Guinness PRO14 it is important to make a clear decision that is in keeping with the advice of the various governments involved."

Resumption of the 2019/20 season will now become a matter of constant review. To this point PRO14 Rugby has ensured that it has the latest information and guidance made available by the local and national authorities via our participating unions in the UK, Ireland, Italy and South Africa.

This will remain the case for the duration of the suspension. This is an unprecedented action for the tournament and as such no end date to the suspension can be provided at this time.

In keeping with our practice during the outbreak, PRO14 Rugby will provide updates on the suspension when more information is available.

Ek persionlik dink hulle maak 'n berg van 'n molshoop, maar miskien sal dit nie si slegte ding vir die Leeus wees as Super rugby ook gestop word nie...

Ja-nee kyk, ek weet nie. Ek verstaan ook glad nie die histerie nie. Dalk is ek net stupid en oningelig. Al wat ek weet is dat mense wie produkte verkoop uit China (amper alle produkte) en mense in toerisme gaan 'n baie onseker tyd binne. As die ding nie vinnig bedaar nie gaan daar onmeetbare nagevolge wees.

Die probleem met as so baie mense saamdrom by die byeenkomste is dat die siekte vinniger kan versprei. As jy bv. so byeenkoms bywoon word jy dalk aangesteek en vat jy dit huis toe. Daar by jou huis is daar dalk klaar siek/jonk/oud en as hulle  siek word van Corona kan dit erger vir hulle wees.
