Manu Tuilagi returns

Manu Tuilagi made his long awaited return to action following a lengthy injury spell that included him being unavailable for the World Cup (disciplinary issues aside). He made this thumping tackle on his return, during Leicester Tiger's 30-27 victory over Northampton Saints.

The former England back has been out of action for 15 months with a groin injury but made his return after 52 minutes of the Aviva Premiership clash at the weekend.

Timing is decent as new England coach Eddie Jones will name his Six Nations squad on Wednesday, however Tigers boss Richard Cokerill doesn't feel Tuilagi is quite ready for Test rugby just yet.
