The 2020 Inter Services Rugby League Championships have been officially cancelled.

The tournament was initially postponed due to the coronavirus pandemic, with the hope it could be rescheduled for later in the year.

However, on Wednesday it was announced that all three teams, along with the UK Armed Forces Rugby League committee, had made the decision to cancel the games.

The Army will remain champions in both the men's and women's championships.

The 2020 tournament will be recorded as 'no competition', Army Rugby League said.

On the Royal Navy Rugby League's official Twitter account, the team said it was "very disappointed" but that the announcement was "not unexpected".
