Eddie Jones discusses Manu Tuilagi selection
England head coach Eddie Jones has urged fit-again Manu Tuilagi to take his opportunity to impress after being named in a 36-man training squad ahead of November’s Quilter Internationals.
Leicester Tigers centre Tuilagi has not played international rugby since March 2016 having been riddled with injuries over the past three years.

However, the 27-year-old has returned to the Leicester side and will be in Bristol for England’s training camp between Sunday 23 September until Tuesday 25 September.
“It’s the first time in the three years I’ve been in England that Manu’s been fit,” said Jones.
“He’s put together a series of games and we’re looking forward to him continuing on that run. He’s got the opportunity to come in and show us what he’s got.”
