New Zealand has been awarded the men’s and women’s World Sevens Series titles for 2020.

The move comes after World Rugby cancelled the remainder of the season because of the coronavirus outbreak.

The tournaments in London, Paris, Singapore and Hong Kong were cancelled on the men’s tour, while the women’s circuit lost rounds in the United States, Paris and Hong Kong.

The All Blacks men’s team claim a 13th title after winning three of the six rounds that were completed before the spread of Covid-19.

The Black Ferns women’s team had looked well on their way to a second successive title, and a sixth in eight years of the circuit, with four tournament triumphs in five rounds before the coronavirus shutdown.
