Billy Broken - again
Having twice broken his right forearm last season, it has been confirmed that Billy Vunipola will definitely miss this year's November internationals with a fractured left forearm. 😞
It is terrible luck for Billy who has also had to endure a shoulder operation and major knee surgery in the last 12-18 months, but also bad news for England who are now faced with a potential crisis at number 8 (with Sam Simmonds also out injured and Nathan Hughes facing several weeks suspension), as well as at loosehead prop with Mako Vunipola doubtful with a calf injury, Ellis Genge also out injured and Joe Marler in retirement.
Any number 8s or looseheads heading to Twickenham to watch England this Autumn ought probably to take their boots...
