Manu Tuilagi set for return from injury in May

Sale Sharks Director of Rugby Alex Sanderson says the club expect Manu Tuilagi to be fit by May.

Manu Tuilagi could make a late claim for a place in the British and Irish Lions squad having suffered an achilles injury in September last year and has been sidelined since.


Sanderson delivered the “brilliant” news that the 29-year-old is set to return next month.

“[We’re] saying May now, sometime in May,” said Sanderson.

“That’s brilliant isn’t it? [We’ll] get him back for some big games for the back end of the season.”
