Rugby League side Toronto Wolfpack target England centre Manu Tuilagi

England and Leicester Tigers centre Manu Tuilagi is the next high-profile rugby union star to be targeted by Toronto Wolfpack according to a report by Ross Heppenstall at the Telegraph.

The Canadian side have already signed former All Blacks star Sonny Bill Williams in a mega-deal that will make him the highest-paid player in the history of both rugby union and rugby league according to another report.

Now the club want to sign Tuilagi to further bolster their ambition to become a global sporting brand.


Manu Tuilagi turned down a big-money move to French Top 14 club Racing 92 earlier this year and re-signed with the Leicester Tigers until June 2021. 

Toronto have looked to add some serious firepower to their squad with former England centre Ben Te’o, who won 18 England caps under Eddie Jones, also remaining on their ­radar and it is believed that Toronto have had contact with representatives of both players.
