Ireland coach Les Kiss has revealed the squad has been hit by a stomach bug ahead of Saturday's meeting with Canada.

The unaffected players trained in Toronto on Monday, but Kiss is sweating over the recovery of some unnamed players.

However, injury worries over skipper Peter O'Mahony, Chris Henry, Fergus McFadden and Robbie Henshaw appear to be easing ahead of and expected sell-out clash at BMO Field.

"There is a bit of attrition after a long season, but fair play to the boys they have been good. We have had a couple of minor injuries from last week, but things are looking okay on that part," Kiss said.

"We have just had a situation today where we will not have a full squad training as there is a little bit of unwellness in the squad, but that is just something you have to deal with when you travel and these little stomach upsets happen."

Ireland go into the match on the back of a 15-12 victory over US Eagles in Houston last Saturday, while the Canadians overcame Tonga in a bad-tempered encounter.
