England Star Set To Miss Six Nations


Manu Tuilagi has only recently returned after a lengthy lay out but it now seems the Leicester and England centre is set to miss another few weeks.

Speaking ahead of their clash with Gloucester this weekdend, Leicester director of rugby Richard Cockerill said: “Manu has just tweaked a hamstring which will probably mean a couple of weeks out.

Tuilagi has just come back from a 15-month layoff and managed to get through his first three games. Tuilagi was always unlikely to feature in the opening couple of games for the Six Nations but no doubt Eddie Jones was hoping he would play a part this year. It’s now highly unlikely Tuilagi will play any part in England’s Six Nations campaign this year.
