England Out of Luck – Billy Vunipola Breaks Arm in Second Test Loss
England seems to be down on luck. They’ve not only lost the second Test against South Africa, but they’ve also lost Billy Vunipola. Vunipola struggled with injuries for the past few years, and this is just another one in a long string of mishaps.
The English No. 8 broke his arm six months ago while playing against Ospreys. Unfortunately, during Saturday’s match against South Africa, Billy refractured the same arm. The injury forced him to leave the field during the first half. His next course of action was to return to London on Sunday and have a check-up.
As we said, Billy has been struggling with injuries for a long time. His first injury dates to 2015, where he suffered a knee injury in the Rugby World Cup. He damaged his knee ligaments badly, an injury that will come back to haunt him a year later. Billy injured his knee again in 2016, causing him to miss a significant part of that season. However, he managed to return for the 2017 Six Nations tournament, as well as for the European Champions Cup with the Saracens. After this short return to the field, he had to sit out the British and Irish Lions New Zealand tour, due to a shoulder injury. Finally, he missed games due to a knee surgery last autumn.
All in all, Android betting apps won’t be so busy processing bets on the English national team. After all, Eddie Jones’s team lost five games in a row and it seems they can’t shake off injuries. Worse of all, the two games against Springboks were both losses. England is meeting South Africa again for the third game, but with everything that’s happened, their chances of victory are very slim.
