England Handed Vunipola Boost

England Handed Vunipola Boost

Saracens prop Mako Vunipola is expected to be fit for England’s World Cup campaign despite suffering a serious hamstring injury. Saracens Director of Rugby Mark McCall has confirmed the 28-year-old is unlikely to feature for his side again this season after picking up the injury during the 20-10 European Champions Cup final win against Leinster on Saturday.

It means Mako Vunipola will miss the final game of the regular Premiership season against Worcester on Saturday, before a home semi-final and possible final at Twickenham on June 1. However, with England’s challenge for World Cup glory not getting underway in Japan until around mid-September, he should be fine to return for Eddie Jones’ side.

McCall, who also confirmed prop Titi Lamositele is sidelined because of an ankle injury, he told the Evening Standard: “Mako has torn a hamstring and is waiting to see exactly what’s happened but I would very much doubt he’d play again this season. “Titi also won’t play again this season. “He [Mako] won’t be out of the World Cup. He will be out for a while though, it is quite a significant injury.” he said.
