Leicester Tigers supporters have taken to the internet to show their strength of feeling for Manu Tuilagi.

Tuilagi has had his application for a work permit turned down and Tigers fans are giving him their backing.

An online petition has been set up on the Tigers club website and you can add your support by clicking here.

A group titled Petition to get Manu Tuilagi a work permit has been launched on the social networking website Facebook and already has more than 700 members. A second group on Facebook called Give Manu Tuilagi a work permit now (please) has almost 400 members.

Fans have also posted messages of support on the Official Leicester Tigers Facebook pages and club website messageboard including Duncan B, who said: “We are all behind you Manu and hope that common sense prevails, would love to see the guy playing for England! The Tuilagis are adopted English for sure!”
