The Ospreys have add to their scrum-half resources with the signing of Canadian half-back Phil Mack.

With Tom Habberfield and Rhys Webb out injured, Tito Tebaldi is the Ospreys' only fit scrum-half And they have acted quickly to bring in Mack, who has 19 caps for Canada, from the British Columbia Bears.

"We are pleased to have been able to secure Phil's services and he will provide us with some much-needed cover," said Andy Lloyd, Ospreys rugby operations manager. "With Rhys already sidelined, Tom's untimely pre-season injury has left us light at scrum-half, having only a winger or untried youngsters as cover.

"With that in mind, we felt it was crucial that we acted swiftly. In Phil we have someone who has impressed at international level and who we believe can come in at short notice and do a good job."
