The Singapore 7s will now be played on 10th and 11th October while the Hong Kong 7s will be played the following week from 16th to 18th October.
It will now be the last leg of this year’s HSBC World 7s Series.
World Rugby, the Hong Kong Rugby Union and Sport Singapore have taken the decision to reschedule the two tournaments in response to continued health concerns relating to the Novel Coronavirus outbreak.
In a statement, World Rugby says the health and safety of the players, fans and everyone working on the event is always their highest priority.
World Rugby says this decision has been taken in order to help protect the global rugby community and the wider public and was taken based on the World Health Organisation and relevant public authority travel and health guidelines.
Hong Kong and Singapore will host HSBC World Rugby Sevens Series 2021 tournaments as per usual in April.
