LANCASTER ADDS TUILAGI AS ENGLAND GETS READY TO TAKE ON ITALY IN ROME THIS WEEKEND

London: Manu Tuilagi has been selected in England’s 23-man squad to face Italy in Rome this weekend in the final round of the Six Nations.
The Leicester Tigers centre is named in the squad for the first time since tearing a pectoral muscle last year.
Tuilagi’s inclusion comes at the expense of Alex Goode, who returns to Saracens.
Matt Mullan and Kyle Eastmond will travel with the squad on Thursday afternoon as 24th and 25th men.
“Every member of the squad has contributed to the cause over the last seven weeks and those not involved this weekend deserve massive credit for the way they have trained and pushed hard for places,” said England head coach Stuart Lancaster.
“There will be opportunities down the line, not least on the tour to New Zealand, and they can further stake their claims for that trip with strong performances for their clubs.
“Manu trained well with us last week and today and is up to speed with the way we want to play. ”
