Admit it. You’ve watched the footage of Manu Tuilagi punching Chris Ashton at least 100 times, if not more.
The former England teammates got in a bit of a scuffle back in 2011, that saw Tuilagi land some monster punches on the winger, resulting in Ashton hilariously having a massive black eye alongside Tuilagi in the England team.
Tuilagi was on BT Sport’s Rugby Tonight show last night, and took part in their ‘Hardest Hits’ challenge. And Lawrence Dallaglio couldn’t resist giving Tuilagi some extra motivation…
@Manutuilagi vs. Ashton 2?!
The Leicester man gets some added motivation as he takes on #HardestHits…
