Vunipola Praises Teammates After Semi Final Win
After Saracens commanding victory over Leicester Tigers which saw them secure a spot in the Aviva Premiership final Billy Vunipola spoke about his thoughts on the game.
“We’re in another final, we beat a very good team” said Billy who was voted the Saracens Young Player of the Season this year. “I think our focus is enjoy tonight and then we’ve got a big week ahead of us next week.”
Reflecting on the game Vunipola added “I think we got lucky a few times, I think there were a few opportunities for them but they just couldn’t hold on to the ball. They started very quickly and we got lucky with that but we rode our luck and we bounced back and that’s down to great character from the team.”
Vunipola was also keen to praise the efforts of the team, the vast majority of which had all faced Racing 92 in Lyon the week before. “The boys did very well today” he said. “The boys backed up what we said we wanted to do after last week and we did that. I’m very proud of the boys and I’m just happy to be involved with such a great group.”
Saracens will now contest the Aviva Premiership final at Twickenham on Saturday 28th May, kick off 15:00.
