England internationals Mako and Billy Vunipola have both signed contract extensions with Saracens – keeping them at Allianz Park until 2022.

The brothers both joined from Bistol, Mako in 2011 and Billy two years later, and between them have made 229 appearances for the Men in Black.

Mako said: “It’s pleasing to get the opportunity to play here at a great club where I’ve spent most of my adult years.

“We’re very lucky a lot of us have grown up together and genuinely consider each other family. You can see that on the field but off it we love each other’s company.

“It’s a bit cringe sometimes but for me that’s what makes this club so strong.”

Billy added: “It was a straight-forward decision. It was always about how I enjoyed being around the club and the boys.

“I’m looking forward to growing as a group and growing friendships I already have.”

Director of Rugby Mark McCall said: “They’ve played a very significant role in the development of the group both on and off the field and naturally we’re thrilled they’ve committed their future to the club for another four years.”

They are the latest squad players to commit their future to the club after Brad Barritt, Juan Figallo, Vincent Koch, George Kruis and Duncan Taylor all penned new deals earlier in the summer.
