Coronavirus postpones London7s and Paris7s

Coronavirus has forced London and Paris 7s legs of the HSBC World Sevens Series postponed until a latter date.

On Friday, the world rugby announced that the leg, set for May has been moved to September.

In a statement, the World Rugby President Sir. Bill Beaumont said the move comes after detailed and constructive dialogue with the respective host and participating unions.

At the same time, the women’s HSBC World Rugby Sevens Series tournament earlier scheduled for May in Langford, Canada, where Kenya Lionesses were to represent the country, has been postponed until later in the year.

Kenya Lionesses who were training for the Langford event in Canada in May from the start of the year have postponed training indefinitely.

Following the government’s directive, the team is currently not in session since they came back from Vancouver and they are all in self-quarantine as a preventive measure. The Hong Kong and Singapore Sevens were also pushed to October due to the Covid-19
