The court hearing for Samoa sevens international Gordon Langkilde has been deferred for a further two weeks.
The 22-year-old was charged in July on two counts of battery, one count of assault and one misdemeanour charge following an off-field altercation with Welsh players at the Sevens World Cup in San Francisco.
His legal team was informed on Wednesday their hearing would be delayed for a third time because the prosecutor is still awaiting further medical evidence.
The Samoa Rugby Union's General Manager of High Performance, Zane Hilton, said they don't why the case keeps being delayed.
"All that happens when it continues to get pushed out is that the anxiety level gets higher and it just gets prolonged and prolonged and gives people more time to think," he said.
"For us we're just continuing to stay strong with the support that we're giving. Peter Poulos the manager is over there with Gordon and we're going to continue to keep that support with Gordon.
"It's a critical period for us so nothing's really changed there for us however we're looking forward to getting it dealt with and knowing where we're at."
Gordon Langkilde, who pleaded not guilty, has been in the US for the past seven weeks awaiting trial and is due back in court on September the 19th.
