Injury casts doubt on Tuilagi’s Six Nations


Sale’s Manu Tuilagi is facing at least six weeks out with the hamstring injury sustained in England’s victory over South Africa on Saturday. Tuilagi suffered a gradethree tear at Twickenham and limped off with just six minutes gone. The 30-year-old centre will visit a specialist over the coming days to learn if he requires surgery, which would result in a lengthier lay-off. Meanwhile, Alun Wyn Jones will require a second shoulder operation after being injured during the Autumn Nations Series. The Wales captain was hurt during Wales’ 54-16 defeat against New Zealand last month.
