Ma'asi ruled out of World Rugby U20 Championship

Northampton Saints hooker Samson Ma'asi has been ruled out of the World Rugby U20 Championship. 

The 19-year-old misses out on the trip to Argentina on medical grounds and is replaced by Bristol Bears' Will Capon. 

Northampton trio Alex Coles, Fraser Dingwall and Ollie Sleightholme all remain with the squad that travels to Argentina on 30 May, facing Ireland (4 June), Italy (8 June) and Australia (12 June) in Santa Fe. 

All three of England U20s' fixtures - that kick-off at 7.30pm BST - are being streamed live on World Rugby's platforms, with the knock-out stages (17 June) and finals day (22 June) being shown live on ITV.
