Billy and Mako Vunipola make decision on their futures after receiving big offers

Billy and Mako Vunipola have signed new contracts with Saracens, turning down offers from France to keep alive their England prospects.

The brothers, who have been at the forefront of the success at StoneX Stadium for the last decade will be remaining in North London, which is hugely exciting news for all fans of the club. 

Billy, who has made 135 appearances for Saracens has won four Premiership titles and three European crowns during his time at StoneX. His try in the 2019 European Cup Final against Leinster sealed the victory, further enhancing his reputation amongst the supporters as a fan favourite. 

The 29-year-old also has 61 England caps to his name, cementing his place as one of the most feared number eights in world rugby. 

Mako has represented the Men in Black 187 times since joining in 2011. He has also been central to the domestic and European success, winning eight trophies for Sarries. 

He has played for England 67 times, and also been on three British and Irish Lions tours and accumulated nine test caps against Australia, New Zealand and South Africa on the 2013, 2017 and 2021 tours.
