RFU respond to reports their could be rule change for Manu Tuilagi

1. Sale Sharks

England head coach Eddie Jones is reportedly heading back to England from Japan to help find a deal to keep the 29-year-old in the Gallagher Premiership.

The Mail Online has revealed that he could be offered a modest contract by another Premiership club with the centre then claiming any deficit from his existing Tigers deal which runs until next summer.

A number of influential sports lawyers have already indicated that Leicester wouldn’t ‘ have a leg to stand on’ if Tuilagi pursued this.

It’s thought that the unnamed club could be Sale Sharks, who managed to increase their budget by offloading Chris Ashton to Harlequins.
