A lot of hope has rested on his shoulders for years now as one among many of England’s golden boys, ever since that historic defeat of the All Blacks at Twickenham where he was immense to say the least.
Yet again, Many Tuilagi has succumbed to injury with 24 hours to the game against South Africa. Tuilagi is reported to have sustained a muscle injury and will be replaced on the bench by Chris Ashton for tomorrow’s tie.
Tuilagi had just gotten back to regular game time with Leicester Tigers and had been called up for his first test match with England since 2016 having been plagued by injuries – the curse still follows him unfortunately.
More to come.
