Coach Brian Evans said: “Amiria is understandably very disappointed and we all feel for her, as we know how hard she has worked to get to her third World Cup.
“We are lucky enough to have someone of Anna’s experience step up, for what will be her fourth Women’s Rugby World Cup,” he added.
The Black Ferns will depart to England for the IRB Women’s World Cup on Friday 13 August.
