Injury News: Mark McCall gives update on the fitness of Billy Vunipola

Billy Vunipola has been hit with another delay in his comeback from a second broken arm.

Saracens boss Mark McCall has confirmed the England number eight would probably miss the start of the Premiership season.

“It was a very straightforward break, so he could come back from that break probably game two or game three,” said Saracens rugby director McCall.

“Probably not game one, not definitely not, but probably not. But he’s running and doing everything he needs to do so he’s fine.

“There’s normally six to eight weeks and he’s forward a week, but we’re not going to rush him back. But it’s fine, he’s good.


“Billy’s good, he’s really really good. He obviously got to play a few games in the summer which was good, he played the final.

“Fingers crossed that this year he’s going to be OK but that’s just a broken arm and one of those things.”
