A member SX10 has returned a positive COVID-19 result following the latest round of testing at the World Tens Series in Bermuda.
A statement from World Tens Series said round 1 will continue "with six teams and following a period of isolation, we hope to welcome their team back for R2."

Kenya 7s quartet of Collins Injera, Oscar Dennis, Andrew Amonde and Willy Ambaka is part of the SX10 team-  a new franchise comprising of members of the South African and Kenya 7s. 

"All the remaining members of the Squad all tested negative at the same time, and since then, they have all re-tested again and have all recorded negative results. However, with the strict protocols in place by both the Government of Bermuda and the World Tens Series, all members of the SX10 squad have been self-isolating."

"SX10 will not take part in round one of the World Tens League this Sunday and Monday and will therefore forfeit their matches. The other six competing teams will all be awarded a 6-0 victory and awarded League points accordingly."

"The World Tens Series Management team is in close dialogue with local authorities and, at this stage, if the SX10 Squad continues to return negative test results, they will be ready to return to play next week for Round two of the World Tens Series League."
