Manu Tuilagi will miss England’s Six Nations clash with Scotland at Murrayfield on Saturday after he suffered a “low-grade groin strain”..
The England powerhouse, who has won 41 caps, was forced from the field early in the 24-17 defeat by France last weekend.
The news comes just a day after it was announced that the Leicester Tiger had retained his place in England’s 35-man training squad for the second round of the competition.
