Ah feckit anyway.
Leicester centre Manu Tuilagi has been forced to pull out of England’s squad for tomorrow’s clash with South Africa at Twickenham.
The 27-year-old has suffered yet another groin injury, although this time it is a low grade injury, with England hopeful he will be fit in time for their game against the All Blacks.
Sale Sharks winger Chris Ashton meanwhile has been drafted in as Tuilagi’s replacement on the bench.
Tuilagi last played for England against Wales in the 2016 Six Nations, and now unfortunately – will have to wait a little bit longer to end his international drought.
