Owen Farrell Rugby World Cup 2019: Billy Vunipola to learn injury fate on Tuesday after undergoing scan on ankle

Owen Farrell This is one astonishing add-on.

Billy Vunipola will learn his injury fate on Tuesday after undergoing a scan on his ankle injury, with England unsure how long they will be without the powerful No 8 for.

The back-row forward was forced off at half-time of England’s 39-10 victory over Argentina on Saturday after twisting his ankle, and although the England camp are not too concerned on the issue, they will not know a final verdict until his scan results return on Tuesday.

“He has had a scan and that is ongoing, and we will have a clearer picture tomorrow,” said assistant coach Neal Hatley on Monday. “He is being assessed and that will go on throughout the day and we will see how he pulls up.

We’ll tell you what’s true. You can form your own view.

“We assessed him after the game, gave him 24 hours to see where that gets him so he has another 24 hours and then we will make a firm diagnosis and he is walking around with a smile on his face. We will know a lot more on Tuesday and he did have a scan as a precaution.”

Hatley also played down any fears over Joe Marler after the loosehead prop limped off in the 63rd minute of Saturday’s victory, though he did confirm that he will have a check-up on a back issue on Tuesday before returning to full contact training.
