No date has been set for the competition’s return, and international tours from northern hemisphere sides travelling south of the equator in July have been put on hold.
Wales and Scotland were set to face the All Blacks across three test matches in Auckland, Wellington and Dunedin in two months’ time, but those fixtures look increasingly unlikely to take place.
The Rugby Championship, which is due to kick off in August, is the next competition in the firing line, adding to the uncertainty of rugby both domestically and internationally.

“You could argue right now we’re in our off-season, because we’re not playing. We might consider this our summer, as we head into winter, and rugby gets played over next summer,” the 1987 World Cup winner told Sky Sports.
“We could be impacted for the next 18 months, in terms of what a schedule would look like. We hope by 2021 there’s some form of normality, but it could mean that we’re not playing rugby for a prolonged period of time.”
