    2020 HK Sevens Cancelled...

    Seen in an email sent out earlier today.


    World Rugby have today announced the cancellation of the remainder of the 2020 Sevens Series, including the Cathay Pacific/HSBC Hong Kong Sevens.

    The ongoing Covid-19 pandemic has created a dynamic global situation, resulting in significant challenges facing running a tournament such as ours.

    We are of course disappointed and were looking forward to hosting you all this year, but we understand that the health and safety of players, and you guys is of the utmost importance.

    But it’s not all bad news – we are now excited to announce that we will be returning to our usual slot next year, with the Cathay Pacific/HSBC Hong Kong Sevens taking place 2-4 April 2021.

    Waving of foreign flags, playing/singing of foreign anthems, and tackling members of the new unified China team, thereby hurting the feelings of all Chinese people in the world, will be attract a life sentence in a special jail setup somewhere to the north.

    Apart from that, everything will be just like it was before.

    RTHK says there's a 2 year crawl back, so you are probably guilty already due to what you did at 2019's Sevens.
