Next season's Dubai and Cape Town Sevens tournaments on the HSBC World 7s Series have been cancelled in the wake of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
World Rugby has released a statement confirming the cancellation of the two tournaments that were initially set to be played on November 26-28 and December 4-6.
Under the regular schedule, New Zealand's Hamilton and Australia's Sydney legs would be the next tournaments but their fates are unclear.
World Rugby has set up a working group to review the plans for the rest of the season, pending the spread of the virus around the world and the impact on international travel.
