Rugby Americas North Sevens tournament cancelled
As the world continues to grapple with the coronavirus, sport events are not being spared with the latest causality being the Rugby Americas North (RAN) Sevens tournament, originally slated for later this year.
According to a correspondence from the Guyana Rugby Football Union (GRFU), the tournament has been cancelled, owing to the restrictions that countries currently face.
“With the continued uncertainty and a landscape which is highly likely to change in the coming months leading up to the Sevens in mid-November, RAN EXCO have taken the decision to cancel the Sevens,” the GRFU said.
“The decision was given to Member Unions immediately, to avoid unnecessary training for the tournament, given the current situation in regards to travel restrictions, high levels of COVID-19 and the imposition of quarantine laws on returning residents, in some member countries.”
The tournament was scheduled for November in The Bahamas.
