Manu Tuilagi looks to have played his final game for England after sealing a surprise move away from the Premiership.

According to Canal+, Tuilagi has signed a two-year deal with Bayonne, having undergone medical examinations at the club on Monday.

Tuilagi came off the bench for England in their 33-31 loss to France over the weekend, earn his 60th and likely final cap.
