England's Billy Vunipola Still An Injury Doubt to Face France


Doubts continue to grow about the fitness of England's talismanic Billy Vunipola after the number eight sat out training in a surgical boot on Tuesday.

Vunipola was taken off at half-time in the 39-10 win over Argentina on Saturday with ankle pain.

The 26-year-old is now a serious doubt for England's final group game against France this weekend.

"He's been in and out of the boot," said England's attack coach Scott Wisemantel.

"We rested him today [Tuesday] at training - at this stage he's available for selection, but if there's any doubt then we'll rest him. We'll make a call on Wednesday night on whether he's fit to play or not."
