Saracens back-row Jackson Wray suffered a fractured skull during their Premiership triumph over Northampton Saints last weekend.

Wray, 31, came onto the field at Franklin’s Gardens for the second period, taking the place of England number eight Billy Vunipola, in their 30-6 victory.

However, Saracens have now revealed that Wray would be “seeing a consultant this week after suffering a fracture in his skull” in the three-try success.

The club stalwart has made more than 250 first-team appearances for Sarries.

Saracens’ latest Premiership win – their eighth from 11 starts this campaign – kept them in second position, nine points behind unbeaten leaders Leicester.

Graham Rowntree signs Munster contract extension

Meanwhile, Munster have announced that forwards coach Graham Rowntree has put pen to paper on a two-year contract extension with the province until at least June 2024.

The former England prop made the move to Limerick in October 2019 on completion of his Rugby World Cup coaching duties with Georgia’s international side.

With an impressive coaching CV and vast experience, he previously had coaching jobs with the British and Irish Lions, England, Harlequins and Leicester Tigers.
