British and Irish Lions lose Billy Vunipola to shoulder injury From thisisoxfordshire The British and Irish Lions must head to New Zealand without one of the most destructive forwards in world rugby after England number eight Billy Vunipola withdrew from the squad through injury.
The Lions said that Saracens star Vunipola had been managing an ongoing shoulder injury which now requires further medical treatment. He will be replaced in the squad by his 32 year old England back row colleague James Haskell, who is set to link up with the 41 man playing party next Sunday. Vunipola was likely to have been an integral part of the Lions Test series victory bid. He delivered a magnificent display when Saracens retained the European Champions Cup by beating French heavyweights Clermont Auvergne eight days ago, and also shone in defeat on Saturday as Exeter knocked Vunipola and company out of Aviva burberry factory store london Premiership title contention.
