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.
