Tuilagi Getting Better Slowly For Centre Position

Manu Tuilagi as the centre player of Leicester is better and his return is much anticipated. Leicester’s hope is much dependent on him and the team’s playoff ambitions would be boosted significantly. He has been playing with a left leg that has been injured and taking time to heal. He has been seen playing with the left leg bandaged heavily.

Leicester has been having a slow recovery from an injury to his left leg and the team is hoping that the spring season will see him back in form and he would contribute significantly for a successive playoff the 14th time. Tigers need Tuilagi in a rejuvenated form so that he can help them get from the seventh to the fourth spot. However the performance that Tuilagi showed last Saturday was evidence that his recovery would be a slow one. As per the head coach of the team, Tuilagi is getting better and in a significant way. The last match saw the centre being on the field, even with his leg bandaged, which was a reason that England’s coach Eddie Jones was there to watch the match.

Tuilagi started slow in the match as part of the defense of Leicester team. He was able to put in better tries when the game moved into the second half. The head coach stated that they had to be patient as Manu had missed about three years of playing footie. He is now better and it is expected that he would be able to play better at the game with Saracens next week. O’Connor decided to give Matt Toomua a chance at fly half position and this paid off as the Australian was able to contribute about 23 points in the game which helped to overturn the score on Quins who had a lead of 13-9.
