The Guinness PRO14 has been suspended indefinitely because of the coronavirus outbreak.

With global sport shutting down, round 14 of the competition for clubs from Scotland, Ireland, Wales, Italy and South Africa was due to take place next weekend

There was already disruption involving the Italian teams, with Ospreys' trip to Zebre and Ulster's game at Benetton both postponed a couple of weeks ago.

PRO14 officals says the resumption of the season will be "a matter of constant review".


Tournament director David Jordan said: “We have made this decision with player welfare and supporter safety foremost in our minds.

"It is clear that everyone across society has a role to play in supporting the actions of governments in order help curb this outbreak and sport must play a key role in that.”

Glasgow Warriors, last year's PRO14 finalists, are in the play-off spots in Conference A, with Edinburgh leading Conference B.
