NZ 7s will miss HSBC Malaga 7s

The New Zealand men's and women's 7s team will not feature at the two legs of the HSBC Malaga 7s which is set to kick off next week.
 
World Rugby confirmed this morning that the All Blacks Sevens will no longer compete in the Spain legs of the World Series.
 
This is after the New Zealand Government announcement late last month to delay opening the New Zealand border meant the teams would not have been able to re-enter the country after playing. 
 
New Zealand Rugby is investigating domestic competition options for the team while the borders remain closed.
 
New Zealand 7s head coach Clark Laidlaw expressed his frustration for not being able to travel. 
 
He said the players returned to training in great spirits and now it's time to crack on and wait for borders to open. 
 
Germany and Belgium have replaced the two teams.
