Waller replaces Vunipola in England's final squad additions for New Zealand rugby tour

  • Print

LONDON - England has added Northampton prop Alex Waller as a replacement for the injured Mako Vunipola in the final squad reinforcements for its New Zealand tour.

Waller scored the last-minute try that secured a 24-20 victory for his club in the Premiership final over Saracens at Twickenham on Saturday.

He is among the 16 extra players that will travel to New Zealand for the tour on Monday night, along with Bath's Anthony Watson and Harlequins' Kyle Sinckler.

They will arrive in New Zealand later this week, too late to be considered for Saturday's first test but in time to play in the second and third matches at Dunedin and Hamilton.

England squad additions: Chris Ashton, Brad Barritt, Luther Burrell, Lee Dickson, Owen Farrell, Ben Foden, Alex Goode, Dylan Hartley, Courtney Lawes, Stephen Myler, Kyle Sinckler, Billy Vunipola, Alex Waller, Anthony Watson, Richard Wigglesworth, Tom Wood
