Injury News: Eddie Jones gives latest on Billy Vunipola

Powerhouse number 8 Billy Vunipola left the field at half-time against Argentina and did not return, much to the worry of England supporters.

England ran in six tries against the 14 men of Argentina to make it three bonus-point wins from three and guarantee themselves a place in the World Cup quarter-finals.

Jones commented on the injury after the match.

“We’ll have a look at in the morning and see what it’s like,” said England boss Eddie Jones.

”He’s twisted his ankle but we don’t think it’s too serious.”

Vunipola appeared to suffer the injury to his left ankle during the first half. He received attention from the England medical staff and played on until half-time with his ankle heavily strapped.

He did not re-emerge, however, and was conspicuous by his absence after full-time when the rest of the squad were conducting their post-match celebrations on the pitch.
