Dallaglio tells Saracens: You have to beat the best to be champions

SARACENS back-row Billy Vunipola has been taking tips from a former European champion in Lawrence Dallaglio as he prepares for his first Heineken Cup final.

Vunipola, who has had a dream season since leaving London Wasps last summer, will be looking to dethrone holders Toulon tomorrow at the Millennium Stadium, with an Aviva Premiership final against Northampton seven days later.

“I was talking to Lawrence Dallaglio a few days ago and he said to win these trophies you have to play the best teams and you have got to beat them,” said Vunipola.

“That is when you get that sense of achievement and that is why it is such a good feeling. Everyone would like an easy route but I’d also like to play against Toulon and one of my heroes in Jonny Wilkinson.”
