England Rugby squad update, Sunday 5 March

Billy Vunipola followed up his return for Saracens by being named in Eddie Jones’ 30-man training squad for England’s RBS 6 Nations clash with Scotland on Saturday.

It was expected that No.8 Vunipola would miss the RBS 6 Nations after rupturing knee ligaments in England’s victory over Argentina back in Novemnber.

But he played 75 minutes of Saracens’ 35-27 Aviva Premiership Rugby win at Newcastle Falcons and Jones has seen enough to include Vunipola in his initial plans for this weekend’s Twickenham clash.
