Sale Sharks resigned to losing Manu Tuilagi

Sale Sharks boss Alex Sanderson expects to see Manu Tuilagi in an England shirt when England face Wales in two weeks time.

The powerhouse centre made his first start since recovering from a hamstring injury and touched down as the Sharks overcame the Worcester.

“Manu was outstanding again,” Sanderson said. “He will phone Eddie (England head coach Eddie Jones) tomorrow and they will make up their own plan.

“Fortunately – because it’s good for the country – he will go to England and will hopefully do as good a job there as he has here for the last two weeks.

“I’m really excited for him. He’s going to do well because he’s trained hard, he’s prepped well and his head is in a good place.”

Four players England should replace – and who should come in against Wales

#1. Joe Marchant

Telegraph: “A better fit at 13, although his touches with ball in hand were disappointingly limited for much of this Test, finishing with only five carries. The balance felt off. “
