Manu Tuilagi is in line for an England return for crunch Six Nations clash against Wales

Manu Tuilagi is set to return to the England squad for the crucial Six Nations match against Wales next weekend.

when England returned home after their successful trip to Rome, Eddie Jones revealed that Tuilagi could be able to play against Wales

Having Tuilagi back in the fold would be a significant boost for England as they gear up for a tough schedule – with Wales and Ireland up next in London before a trip to Paris for a grand finale against title favourites France. 

They will need all the firepower they can muster and their 30-year-old wrecking ball offers that in abundance.

Asked which absentees might be available again for round three of the tournament, the head coach said: ‘Potentially, Joe Launchbury, Tuilagi, Courtney Lawes, Lewis Ludlam. There’s a question mark about Sam Underhill too, so there are a few who could come back into the squad.’

‘To have someone who can take you forward quickly and engage two or three defenders allowing you space would be really useful to us.

‘When you’ve got smaller centres, you’ve got to be much better at your running, support lines and passing. 

‘I think we’re making some progress. We’ve had three centres play and Henry Slade has been very good. Joe Marchant and Elliot Daly have had their moments, but we need to get more out of that and we understand that.

‘If Manu is fit… I’ll have a chat to Alex (Sanderson, Sale’s director of rugby) and Manu, see where they’re at and whether he’s got enough petrol in the tank to make the step up.’
