- Tom Curry to learn suspension fate on Tuesday after red card
- World Rugby satisfied with decisions over other head clashes
England are ready to welcome Billy Vunipola back for their second World Cup match against Japan on Sunday and potentially offset the loss of Tom Curry, who learns whether he will be suspended following his red card against Argentina on Tuesday.
Vunipola is available to face Japan in Nice having sat out last Saturday’s 27-10 victory over Argentina after a red card against Ireland during England’s warm-up campaign. Last week Vunipola was seen training on his own, away from the rest of the squad, but the defence coach Kevin Sinfield has confirmed the No 8 is fit for selection.
