“B***ocks” – Manu Tuilagi the latest England star to suffer injury ahead of Australia tour

Below, we look at five players who will almost definitely not travel whether due to injury or personal choice.

#1. Manu Tuilagi

Sale Sharks have confirmed the powerhouse centre has undergone knee surgery and won’t face Australia as he bids to return to full fitness for the 2022/23 season.

Sale’s statement read: ‘Sale Sharks can confirm Manu Tuilagi has undergone a routine procedure on his knee which will rule the 31-year-old out of this summer’s England tour to Australia.

‘The club, in close consultation with England Rugby, have decided that a summer of rest and a full pre-season is the best course of action to ensure Manu is fit and available for Sale Sharks and England during a crucial year for both club and country.

‘Everyone at the club wishes Manu all the best for his recovery and looks forward to seeing him at Carrington for the start of pre-season.’
