Sale Sharks issue disappointing injury update on Tom Curry

England flanker Tom Curry faces a significant period on the sidelines after coming off injured against Ireland during the 2022 Six Nations.

Sale boss Alex Sanderson said: “Tom is out for another five to six weeks with a hamstring tear.

“It’s just one of those things and he will be back for the Heineken Cup quarter-finals (May 6-8) if we are worthy of getting through to that stage.

“We are lucky that we have someone who is genetically the same [twin brother Ben Curry] to come back this week. Ben is looking really sharp. Tom also had tonsilitis as well as a concussion (against Wales). He had a torrid time in this Six Nations and it has been tough for him.

“We gave him a week off and it was his grandad’s birthday at the weekend. It is about getting him back to some normality and he has been around the training ground today [Tuesday] with a smile on his face.”

On Manu Tuilagi, the Sale boss added: “Manu is up for selection this weekend – one of the world’s best centres. He did most of the training last week and there was a discussion about if he would go back to England but with the jump from the Premiership to international training loads, no one thought it was wise.

“He is looking sharp this week and to have him back is brilliant on and off the field. He is a wrecking ball. People grow a few inches around him and the squad gets tighter.”
