'We won't be falling for Warren's mind games' says Billy Vunipola.

BILLY Vunipola enjoys Warren Gatland's mind games and insists they will not distract England from the task of putting one foot in the World Cup quarter-finals.

A 35-11 bonus-point victory over Fiji at Twickenham saw the hosts make a strong start in their quest to progress from a tough group that also includes Wales and Australia.

Next up are Gatland's Wales and the Kiwi, famed for trying to unsettle opponents with some carefully-selected words, had England playing down comments he made after the World Cup squads were announced.

Gatland insisted Stuart Lancaster's men were confused over their game plan and in selection and declared Wales were a more settled side.

"It's good Warren does this, but it only works if you react to it but it is something that we don't really pay any attention to," Saracens number eight Vunipola said.

"Wales are a very good team, they have won so many trophies in however many years, but we won't be falling for Warren's mind games.

"Mind games don't really interest me. I'm more interested in the fact we are playing Wales at home in a World Cup and I am in it."
