London - Star centre Manu Tuilagi is set to miss England's autumn Tests against South Africa, Australia, Argentina and Fiji with a groin injury, his Leicester club said on Sunday.
The 25-year-old has not played since the first game of the English Premiership season and the Tigers' director of rugby Richard Cockerill believes he will be out for another "six to eight weeks".
"He has still got a tight groin. We are hoping he will be back on the field within six to eight weeks," said Cockerill.
"He is a world-class player. He doesn't want to be injured, we don't want him to be injured. We want him on the field."
England take on South Africa at Twickenham on November 12 before facing Fiji, Argentina and Australia.
