Manu Tuilagi returns to England squad to face New Zealand

Rugby


Manu Tuilagi will return to the England squad after being included in Eddie Jones’ 25-man squad to face New Zealand on Saturday at Twickenham.

Tuilagi, 27, has not played for England in two-and-a-half years, and last started in 2014, due to injury problems but has been looking good of late although he pulled out of the South Africa game with a groin strain.

His performance against the All Blacks in 2012 inspired a 38-12 victory that sent Twickenham into delirium.

Lock Courtney Lawes, who along with Tuilagi missed the 12-11 victory over South Africa last Saturday, was also in the squad to face the All Blacks.

England flanker Tom Curry was ruled out of the remaining November internationals Tuesday due to an ankle injury.
