Summary
Standing at 6 feet 2 inches, and weighing almost 20 stone, Billy Vunipola is a rampaging and unmissable presence on the rugby pitch. His awesome physicality and pulsating runs have been one of the chief factors in England's dramatic upturn in fortunes. Ball in hand, Vunipola is a relentless, unbridled, unstoppable force of nature for his country, and for his club side Saracens. He was awarded three separate Man of the Match awards as England swept to the 2016 Grand Slam, and a couple of months later proved a huge thorn in Australian sides as Eddie Jones' rejuvenated team whitewashed the Wallabies 3-0 in their own backyard. 'Wrecking Ball' captures this young man's appealing personality and charisma, and covers Vunipola's peripatetic early years in Sydney then Wales, before he settled down in England to truly find his feet as a modern English rugby hero
