Top League 2019/20

Overview
Following the arrest of a player of the Red Dolphins Hino on suspicion of illicit drug use, the club made the decision to refrain from their activities for an indefinite period of time.
In light of the decision, the Japan Rugby Top League decided to cancel the March rounds, included round 8 originally postponed to May due to the COVID-19 outbreak, to conduct thorough compliance education.

Later it was decided to cancel the tournament due to the COVID-19 outbreak.
