'We'll live to fight another day' - B. Vunipola
Billy Vunipola believes Saracens’ 28-15 win puts them in a good position in Pool 1 as they go into the two final remaining fixtures with 13 points.
Vunipola had a superb game at the base of the Saracens scrum, and finished off a fine multi-phase team try in the second half as the England international was named Man of the Match.
Speaking after the game, Vunipola said; “I think you saw how tough it was out there. When we got ahead on the scoreboard Sale came back and scored points, it was a really tough contest and you wouldn’t expect anything else in a European game.
“It was a massive game. Sale laid down the challenge last weekend and I think we had to come here today and back it up and prove that it was no fluke. The boys did that really well I thought. It was a little disappointing that we didn’t get a four try bonus point, but we’ll live to fight another day”.
He added; “The win is the most important thing, Munster and Clermont had a really tough game last weekend, and now we’ve all lost one game. It’s about us winning those remaining games, but we know it’s going to get tougher from here”.
