The rest of this year’s World Rugby Sevens Series has been canceled due to the coronavirus pandemic, the sport’s governing body said Tuesday.

“HSBC World Rugby Sevens Series 2020 in Langford, London, Paris, Singapore, and Hong Kong have been canceled due to the ongoing and dynamic global nature of the COVID-19 pandemic,” World Rugby said in a statement.
“The decision follows detailed and constructive dialogue with the host and participating unions, and has been taken with the health and wellbeing of the rugby community and the wider public as a top priority.” 

The early conclusion of the tournament means that New Zealand will be awarded both the women’s and men’s titles after being top of the standings before the pandemic initially suspended the series.
