England centre Manu Tuilagi has been ruled out of his side's clash against Scotland this weekend due to an ankle injury.

A tweet from the RFU's official account confirmed that Tuilagi would miss Saturday's match in a major blow to England's preparations.

"He'll be running fully by the weekend but will not be able to train until then," added the RFU.

The Leicester centre should be in contention for England's fixture the following week against Ireland in Dublin.
