Confronted.

Saracens number eight Billy Vunipola was confronted on the pitch by a Munster fan following his side’s 32-16 win over the southern province in the Champions Cup this afternoon.

Vunipola was booed as he entered the stadium and throughout the match following his decision to support Israel Folau’s homophobic outburst on social media that has resulted in Rugby Australia terminating his contract.

Some fans in attendance at the Ricoh also brought gay pride flags as a message to Vunipola, while a number of fans online are outraged at how the number eight was portrayed when he received his man of the match award – despite doubling down on his comments.
