Manu Tuilagi is being lined-up to make his England comeback in the climax to the autumn series against Australia on Saturday week.
‘Manu is progressing nicely. He’s at a stage where we want to be 100 per cent sure,’ Mitchell said.
‘He was doing some running intervals with the medical team. We’ll make a decision once he’s at 100 per cent but we’re working him towards the Australia game.
‘It’s an adductor injury that needs to be trained at high intensity. He hasn’t reached high intensity yet, so he progressing towards that.
‘He’ll need to experience that and then we’ll get feedback from him as an athlete and vice versa on what we see.’
