James Haskell reveals he’s ‘gutted’ for Billy Vunipola in emotional Instagram post

James Haskell has sent a message of support to friend and teammate Billy Vunipola, who the Wasps flanker replaces in the British & Irish Lions squad.

England and Saracens powerhouse Vunipola was forced to withdraw with a shoulder injury on Sunday.

“Thank you, everyone, for the amazing messages and support,” wrote Haskell.


“Really gutted for Big Billy Vunipola. For me he is one of the best backrow players in the world and a huge loss to any team. He is a guyIi admire every time he plays.”

“Obviously its the biggest honor in my career to get a call up, to any players dream the British & Irish Lions.

“However I have a huge game with Wasps this weekend. Something as a team we have wanted for so long. Thats my only focus for now.
