Billy Vunipola sends warning to England teammates

England go into today’s win-or-bust Rugby World Cup quarter-final against Australia with Billy Vunipola warning his team mates: “Turn up or we go home”.

For the first time since the Wallabies eliminated them from the last tournament in 2015, England face a straight knockout match.

Four years of hard toil and painstaking preparation come down to 80 minutes in Japan and Vunipola was blunt when he addressed his team mates.

The Saracens star said: “I told the lads, ‘this could be our last session’. I said it just to check the boys and I had a few stares. They laughed it off, but I was, like, ‘I am being serious, if we don’t turn up, we are going home’.

“You don’t want to live in fairyland because you get to Sunday and it’s done, and that’s when the excuses come up.

“We know if we can keep playing the way we have been playing, but just that little bit better, we will be in a good place.”
