Following in the footsteps of international rugby brothers, Manu Tuilagi has successfully carved an impressive career of his own with Leicester Tigers, England and the British & Irish Lions.

A Premiership title winner for the first time in 2013 –scoring against Northampton Saints in the final – Manu joined the British & Irish Lions tour to Australia and shared in the triumphant trip.

He also scored a double at the Tigers supporters’ awards as he was named Young Player of the Year for a second time and won 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 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 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 established himself in international company and went to his first Rugby World Cup.

He started a first Premiership Final in 2011/12 before joining England’s squad for the South Africa tour, playing in all three Tests.
