Leicester give injury update on Jonny May & Manu Tuillagi
England duo Manu Tuilagi and Jonny May were both forced off in the early stages of Leicester’s 16-15 win over local rivals Wasps.
Centre Tuilagi, who has been plagued with injuries over the past three seasons, will have a scan on a pectoral strain, though head coach Matt O’Connor told the Leicester Mercury he hopes it will not prove too serious.
Winger May took a blow to the head attempting to tackle Wasps opponent Christian Wade but the Leicester boss hopes he will get the all-clear to face Bath.
Tigers have no game this coming weekend as the European quarter-finals are being staged, so both May and Tuilagi have an extra week to recover before the Twickenham clash with Bath.
