England
Injured Mako Vunipola 'like a pregnant dog'
ESPN Staff
May 28, 2014

Mako Vunipola had a scan on Monday after injuring his knee in Saturday's Heineken Cup defeat to Toulon and although he has not officially been ruled out of Saturday premiership final, the chances of him playing seem slim.

"He had a scan,' Vunipola's younger brother Billy said. 'I'm not too sure what the results are but he's not in the best of moods.

"He is not the best person to talk to when he has got an injury so he is like a pregnant dog at the moment. You can't go near him or he'll bite you."

Vunipola is also a doubt for England's tour of New Zealand next month and Stuart Lancaster yesterday called up Bath's Nathan Catt as injury cover.
