Vunipola Stars As Saracens Advance

Saracens’ Billy Vunipola produced a man-of-th- match display to help Saracens reach the Champions Cup final at the expense of Munster. Vunipola has been in the headlines all week due to off-field matters but he showed no signs of nerves. Saracens opened the scoring after a try from Michael Rhodes before Vunipola crashed over.

Fl- half Owen Farrell was also on song as he kicked 22 points. Darren Sweetnam’s score for Munster was in vain and Saracens, the two-time champions, are now through to their fourth final in six seasons. Mark McCall’s troops will take on either Leinster or Toulouse and he was quick to praise his players for their display.

He told BBC Sport: “It feels good because we played really well. We knew it was the kind of game where you had to be persistent and we were. “It’s easy to get frustrated when the scoreboard doesn’t reflect how you’re playing, but the players could feel it building and we started the second half strongly. “Most of the reason we couldn’t score a try is because of how brilliant Munster are defensively – we attacked as well we have for a while, we just couldn’t get over the line.”
