Billy Vunipola set to miss England's Six Nations campaign after arm break

Billy Vunipola set to miss England's Six Nations campaign after arm break”

Vunipola's layoff comes just after he had made his comeback from a three-month absence with knee trouble, with the 15-15 draw against Ospreys being only his second game since returning.

England open their Six Nations against Italy on February 4 knowing Haskell faces a ban for an offence that appears to be in the mid-range of making a risky tackle, which would result in a six-week suspension.

Saracens and England number eight Billy Vunipola is set to miss the Six Nations after fracturing his forearm.

Saracens have confirmed that the England worldwide is facing a prolonged spell on the sidelines, however, effectively ruling him out of the Six Nations, which begins in less than three weeks' time.

Having undergone an X-ray on Sunday, Saracens confirmed that Vunipola had suffered the broken arm, which represents his fourth major injury in 14 months and could result in a fourth surgery depending on the outcome of a specialist appointment later this week once the swelling has gone down.

"Billy is due to see a specialist later this week, when a timeframe for recovery may be defined", a Saracens spokesman said in a statement.

England could be sweating on the fitness of Billy Vunipola after he sustained an injury playing for Saracens this weekend.

The 25-year-old has just recently returned from a serious injury, and having missed the Lions tour last year and the recent November internationals, having to sit out any of the Six Nations would be a massive blow to the player.
