Billy Vunipola has suffered yet another injury setback that casts doubt over his involvement in England's summer tour to South Africa.

Vunipola withdrew from training with his club Saracens on Wednesday afternoon because of a tight hamstring that has ruled him out of at least Saturday's Aviva Premiership clash with Gloucester, and he is being assessed to discover the extent of the damage.

The number eight has played only 249 minutes over the past year due to shoulder, knee and arm injuries and his last international appearance was against Ireland in March 2017.

"Nothing happened, he just felt some tightness and awareness of that tightness. The hamstring hasn't pulled or anything," Saracens' director of rugby Mark McCall said.
