It has been confirmed by Scottish Rugby the 2019/20 season will not resume after the season was suspended originally for two weeks last Friday.

Ross Sutherland are bottom of the table and face relegation to Caledonia North Three having had three games left to play and were 10 points behind North Police in seventh.

Ross Sutherland were due to play their final two matches against North Police where bonus point victories, without North Police picking up bonus points, would have been enough for them to escape relegation.

A process is now underway to consider the implications of the early closure of the season on both league and cup competitions.

This process will involve the Championship and Competitions Committees and the Scottish Rugby Council, with the aim to present a recommendation to the Scottish Rugby Board by the end of the monthas to the implications of various options for promotion, relegation and the awarding of league titles.

Scottish Rugby said: "The preferred option to resume the season at an appropriate point is, regretfully, not a reasonable prospect in a safe and practical time frame, with further social restrictions on gatherings and travel an increasing possibility.

"A range of options are being considered in this regard."
