Vunipola suffers broken arm for third time this year

Both brothers, who have been named in England's training squad for the Autumn series, retreated to the bench, with Mako pictured with his leg in a protective brace and Billy with his arm packed in ice. "He is expected to be out of action for around 12 weeks", confirmed Saracens in a statement.

Saracens and England will also be waiting on Nick Isiekwe's fitness after he suffered an ankle sprain in the game at Glasgow while Mako Vunipola's progress will be monitored after he strained his calf.

Billy Vunipola and Mako Vunipola are injury concerns for England's November Tests.

"Billy has fractured his left arm and will have surgery on Tuesday".

Wingers Jonny May and Marland Yarde are also under injury clouds.

England host the Springboks at Twickenham on Saturday, November 3, followed by a clash against the All Blacks a week later.
