Refreshed Billy glad to be back
Saracens No.8 Billy Vunipola returns to action tonight after his off-season break, as Saracens' pre-season campaign continues for the 2014/15 season, writes Matthew Hennessey.
Vunipola Jr. faces Welsh region the Ospreys in tonight’s pre-season clash at the HAC, and the bulldozing back-rower says he is feeling suitably refreshed for the upcoming 2014/15 campaign after a summer that saw the 21-year-old tour New Zealand with England.
“I’m pretty excited, as it will be first game back with Saracens after a few weeks off in the summer,” said Vunipola on the eve of tonight's game.
“It’s been good to get back and integrate with all the boys again, good to be training alongside them again and hopefully it will be a good game tonight against a strong Ospreys side.
He added; “I feel refreshed, and I’m pretty excited to be out there again, and we’re in our new kit so hopefully we’ll look the part as well”.
