More Torment For Tuilagi
September 7 2017

Is there an unluckier rugby player than Manu Tuilagi? The injury he picked up against Bath is now much worse than feared and he's not likely to be back until Christmas ...    

Manu actually managed to finish the game so today's news has come as a bolt out of the blue. It follows after a scan revealed that he has damaged ligaments.

It's a blow for both Tigers and England as Eddie Jones held out the olive branch this week when he said :"“He has to get fit, get focused, stay out of the pubs and he should be alright."

So that's half the Tigers season ruled out and the Autumn internationals.
