Saracens have revealed that back-row forward Jackson Wray suffered a fractured skull during their Gallagher Premiership victory over Northampton on Sunday.

The 31-year-old went on as a half-time replacement for Billy Vunipola as Saracens won 30-6 at Franklins Gardens, finishing the contest but appearing to hurt himself in the final play of the game.

In an injury update posted on the club's official website, Saracens said that Wray would be "seeing a consultant this week after suffering a fracture in his skull last weekend against Northampton Saints."
