Tuilagi could miss Bok series

2012-05-28 19:26

London - England and Leicester centre Manu Tuilagi is at risk of missing his adopted country's summer tour of South Africa after being cited on Monday for a tip tackle during the Premiership final defeat by Harlequins at the weekend.

The 21-year-old Samoan-born back - who made the wrong sort of headlines after England's quarter-final exit in the World Cup by jumping off a boat in Auckland Harbour - is to have his case heard on Tuesday for the alleged tip tackle on Harlequins scrumhalf Danny Care.

England travel to South Africa next month to play five matches in what is Stuart Lancaster's first tour as coach.

    I have yet to see a better or bigger punch thrown on a rugbyfield, I felt it in my lounge here in South Africa - and...Tuilagi got away with it. Well done to Chris Ashton for not going down, he wobbled, but he didn't go down. If he were a lesser man, it would have been 'good night Irene'.
