Re: Guinness PRO14 season has been suspended in response to the evolving COVID-19 outbreak until....

Didn't think suspensions or other penalties with no end date were allowed under Human Rights laws?

League should just plead guilty, wear a nice suit and not eat the biscuits, and maybe suspension will be cut by a few weeks.
