Canada will be without powerful back Jeff Hassler for their RWC qualifiers against the USA over the coming weeks due to the Osprey being ill.

Hassler's new region, who he moved to in the off-season, announced that the Sevens and Fifteens international won't be travelling to North America.

"The winger is suffering from a viral infection, which has prevented him from travelling but is expected to be back in full training in around 14 days," read a statement on their website.
