The Scottish Rugby Union became the latest to cancel the remainder of the ongoing 2019/20 season following the outbreak of coronavirus.

All the sports events in the country were suspended between 15th and 29th March but SRU decided it would be tough to resume the season considering the restrictions placed as they battle to contain the spread of COVID-19.

The announcement came after Ireland, England and Wales boards have also confirmed that they have cancelled their respective domestic season.

"I am extremely grateful to everyone who has contributed this week to enable us to give our clubs this important guidance on the 2019/20 season," said Scottish Rugby Union president Dee Bradbury.

"Given the wider issues in society around COVID-19 we are conscious of the pressure our clubs and their staff will be under and I hope the decision today provides clarity. The Club Hardship Fund is a very welcome initiative and as promised the details and criteria are now published and applications can now begin.

"I'd like to pass on my best wishes to everyone connected to our sport at this difficult time and hope you can stay safe and well."
