The event was cancelled on 30 April 2021 as a result of the coronavirus pandemic in Papua New Guinea.[1] Since the outcome would have determined which side would move on to the third round of Oceania qualification for the 2023 Rugby World Cup, Cook Islands was chosen to progress due to their higher position in the World Rugby Rankings at the time.[2]
