Billy Vunipola has won his battle to be fit for England’s World Cup quarter-final against Australia.
Vunipola came during the week on Wednesday’s practice session to complete his recovery from the ankle sprain sustained in the pool victory over Argentina that secured passage to the knockout phase.
Head coach Eddie Jones is very likely as part of a unchanged starting XV knowing the Saracens No 8 strong ball-carrying might be a key asset from the Wallabies to mention Vunipola in the back row.
Jones admits his group and there’s expected to be an adjustment on the bench with Jack Nowell losing out creating a chance for Jonathan Joseph.
The Saracens team-mate Maro Itoje of vunipola is still prepared to adopt the game of his career admitting the conflict with Australia is win or bust.
England will look to complete a seventh consecutive victory over the Wallabies, that input the encounter battle-hardened with a group campaign that is tougher.
Jones substituted Stuart Lancaster stating his aim was supposed to steer England to World Cup glory in Japan which dream could possibly be reduced on Saturday. Itoje knows the stakes are high.
“It seems huge. This is a situation I have not been in previously, and that’s partly the reason it is really exciting for me personally,” the Lions lock said.
“When you’re in it, you don’t think about tomorrow what I did three years back.
“What is important is what’s in front of you and what you must deal with. Come Saturday, it’ll be the largest.
“it is a bit more intriguing today. There’s no tomorrow . It’s do or die. There’s no’we’ll get it right next week’. It’s about acting.”
