England Rugby: Manu Tuilagi Set To Make A Comeback Against Australia
Manu Tuilagi is relied upon to make his hotly anticipated England return in their last pre-winter match against Australia on 24 November.
The Leicester centre was relied upon to play against South Africa in the primary match of the fall, yet he endured groin injury while training.
Eddie Jones on Manu Tuilagi: “He’s not quite right. We know he’s going to be really important in the future so it;s not worth risking him. He’s nearly 99.9% right but until he’s 100% it’s not worth risking him.”https://t.co/eCY8xt7jdx

Saturday’s installation against 2019 World Cup has Japan will come too early, yet safeguard mentor John Mitchell says Tuilagi could confront the Wallabies.
Previous New Zealand mentor Mitchell trusts England are shutting the hole on the All Blacks in the wake of enduring a one-point thrashing to the title holders a weekend ago.
England defence coach John Mitchell on Manu Tuilagi: “Manu is progressing nicely. He’s at a stage where we want to be 100 per cent sure. We’ll make a decision once he’s at 100 per cent – but we’re working him towards the Australia game.” @SkySportsNews
