World Rugby will not decide on whether Test matches in July will go ahead before the end of April, French rugby federation chief Bernard Laporte told AFP Thursday.
"For the moment, they'll take a decision end-April on the cancellation of the July tours," Laporte said, as the coronavirus pandemic continues to wreak havoc on sporting events.
World Rugby president Bill Beaumont had on Wednesday suggested postponing summer matches to the autumn, but Laporte insisted there was "nothing official".
Countries from the northern hemisphere traditionally travel south in July to play a couple of international matches, while the opposite occurs in November.
The Springboks are due to host Scotland for two Tests and Georgia for one over July.
Springbok July Tests:
July 4: Scotland, Cape Town
July 11: Scotland, Durban
July 18: Georgia, Port Elizabeth
