IN THE SPOTLIGHT: England's Six Nations campaign has been given a boost with the return of star duo Maro Itoje and Billy Vunipola.

Saracens have included the lock Itoje and No.8 Vunipola in their starting XV for Sunday's  Premiership clash against Wasps.

Itoje suffered a broken jaw druing Saracens' defeat to Harlequins early in December, while Vunipola has been out of action since September 2017 due to a knee injury.

England expected to be without the service of the star duo, however, it seems they have fully recovered ahead of schedule.

England kick off their Six Nations campaign against Italy in Rome on February 4.
