Billy Vunipola: Saracens boss says England back-row did not train before final
Vunipola's older brother Mako put in a man-of-the-match display in the front row for Saracens, who were also indebted to fellow England stars such as Owen Farrell, George Kruis and Maro Itoje for producing an unstoppable run in the closing months of the campaign. "We're very lucky to have international players like that who love coming back to the club," added McCall.

Super League: Catalans Dragons 33-20 Leeds Rhinos
Dragons move up up to 10th and to within a point of the top eight after securing back-to-back wins in Super League for the first time this season, with a defeat to Saints the only blemish on a fine recent run by Steve McNamara's men. And the hosts - who introduced controversial new addition Kenny Edwards to the crowd before the game - looked sharp early on in Perpignan, with tries from Jullien, Garcia and McIlorum all coming inside the opening 19 minutes.

Buttler and Bess give England hope with 125 stand
Pakistan remain strong favourites, but further occupation by England's seventh-wicket pair and healthy contributions from the tail could give the hosts an outside chance of pulling off a remarkable victory. Leg-spinner Shadab twirled away from the Pavilion End, turning the ball down the slope and playing tricks out of the rough - the delivery that bowled Stoneman scuttled through without bouncing.

Froome effectively seals Giro title in penultimate stage
Thibaut Pinot had entered the stage in third overall but the French rider cracked on the penultimate climb and dropped far behind, enabling Miguel Angel Lopez to take the final podium spot, 4:57 behind Froome. However, Froome is racing under the cloud of a potential ban after a urine sample he provided at the Spanish Vuelta in September showed a concentration of the asthma drug salbutamol that was twice the permitted level.
