The Black Ferns test against the USA, which was to be played in Dunedin at the same time has also been cancelled.

The decision was made by World Rugby with a number of other games also cancelled.

The games have been cancelled due to COVID-19 and the travel and quarantine restrictions that apply in various countries.
