Leicester Tigers powerhouse centre Manu Tuilagi has received a boost in his hopes of pulling on the England shirt again during the Autumn internationals, reports the Mail Online.
Since his Test debut back in 2011, the man monster has won just 26 England caps.
Remarkably, due to injuries and suspension, only five of those have come since he toured with the Lions in 2013.
Well informed journalist Chris Foy, has reported in the Mail that “the 26-year-old has not been ruled out, even though he was ejected from an England training camp last month after a drinking session with Sale wing Denny Solomona.”
“That does not mean the England management will give Tuilagi a clean slate after this latest disruptive episode. It will count against him and he will have to convince the coaches that he is ready.
“His antics last month harmed his prospects but he is seen by the hierarchy as a potent attacking weapon.”
