Tests postponed

The All Black test against Scotland in Dunedin in July has officially been postponed.

New Zealand Rugby announced yesterday the test, scheduled for July 18, along with the two-test series with Wales, had been postponed indefinitely.

There is no indication when they will be played, if at all.

Extensive travel restrictions and concerns over Covid-19 led to the postponements.

The Black Ferns test against the United States in Dunedin had also been postponed. That means there will be no test rugby anywhere in the world in July.
