Leicester v Northampton: Manu Tuilagi

Longer spell out: Tuilagi

England and Leicester centre Manu Tuilagi is a doubt for the Six Nations after having undergone surgery on his chest, according to local reports.

BBC Radio Leicester believe the 22-year-old, who tore a pectoral muscle against Newcastle Falcons in September, will be back by February.

Rehabilitation was expected to see him return by late November but boss Richard Cockerill has now given a new time-frame for Tuilagi.

England begin the Six Nations away to France.
