World rugby sevens series events off

World Rugby has postponed more world sevens series tournaments and cancelled the world under-20 championship which was to be hosted in northern Italy because of the coronavirus pandemic.

The men's tournament in London and Paris will be postponed, provisionally until September while the women's tournament in Langford, Canada has been postponed until later in the year.

The Olympic Games repechage qualifying tournament in June is under review, as World Rugby talks with the IOC about the qualifying process.

The junior worlds were to be held in June and July. Also, the World Rugby Hall of Fame in Rugby, England, has been closed to the end of May.
