England number eight Billy Vunipola scored the decisive try against Leinster to earn Saracens’ third Champions Cup title.

With three points separating the two sides after 70 minutes, Vunipola carried the ball from the back of an attacking scrum on the Leinster five metre line and powered through four defenders to score under the posts.

After a gruelling battle of physicality and dominance at the breakdown, Saracens managed to win the game 20-10 at St James’ Park in Newcastle, denying Leinster their fifth title.

Vunipola made 16 carries and ran 65 metres with ball in hand before being substituted after 75 minutes, indicating that the 26-year-old is back to his best.

    That put in was so not-straight that I'm surprised Vunipola felt comfortable being part of the scrum.

    At the time I thought it was an odd decision to pick at the base seeing as they pulverised them at the previous 5m scrum and won a penalty.
