The youngest of the rugby-playing Tuilagi brothers, Manu is recognised as one of the most exciting talents in the game.

A Premiership title winner for the first time in 2012/13, Manu was also selected for the British & Irish Lions tour to Australia.

A try-scorer in the 2013 Premiership Final, he also scored a win double at the season’s supporters’ awards as he was named Young Player of the Year for a second time in three years and collected Try of the Season as he finished off a superb team score against Worcester Warriors.

Manu followed older brothers Fereti, Henry, Alesana, Anitelea and Vaevae into a Tigers shirt, and became the first member of the famous Samoan rugby family to win representative honours with England.

He claimed his first try in senior rugby in a home win over Leeds in September 2010 and made the England Saxons squad for the 2011 Six Nations period, lining up alongside club colleague Billy Twelvetrees at centre, before progressing to the senior squad.

Rugby Players Association Young Player of the Year and Young Player of the Year as voted by both Tigers supporters and players in 2010/11 after eight tries in his first season of senior rugby, he missed the Premiership Final due to suspension, but quickly established himself in international company and went to his first Rugby World Cup.

He started the 2011/12 Premiership Final and then joined England’s squad for the South Africa tour, playing in all three Tests.
