“Gutted” – Manu Tuilagi and Owen Farrell injury update: Centre gets his scan results

England and Sale Sharks centre Manu Tuilagi is out for at least six weeks after suffering a hamstring injury in the thrilling win over South Africa.

The 30-year-old had only recently returned from an 18-month England hiatus is now a major doubt for the Six Nations, and Tuilagi will now see a specialist to find out if he needs an operation.

Sanderson said: “Poor Manu. I’m gutted for him and I’m gutted personally too because I thought we were managing him well.

“It’s a grade three tear and we’re waiting for him to see a specialist to find out if he needs an operation.

“We hope, and we think, that it won’t come to that. If it doesn’t need surgery, then I’m told it’ll be 6-8 weeks. If it does, it will be months – probably 12 weeks.”

Asked for an update on his skipper yesterday, Saracens’ director of rugby Mark McCall said: ‘Owen had an operation on Friday. We know he’ll get back as quickly as he can and hopefully that’s in time to play a game or two for us before the Six Nations.’
