Manu Tuilagi’s latest England comeback has been aborted after the Leicester centre suffered a minor groin strain in training. A decade later, at England’s 2011 Rugby World Cup training camp, Tuilagi would triumph in the team’s bench-press and wrestling contests.
The first time Manu Tuilagi played against France, England were knocked out of the 2011 World Cup and the next day he was in trouble for jumping off a ferry into Auckland Harbour. It's a sports' cliché, but the bench press continues to occupy a uniquely macho seat in the pantheon of weight training disciplines, and professional rugby players are by no means immune. 114.8k Followers, 584 Following, 57 Posts - See Instagram photos and videos from Manu Tuilagi (@tuilagimanu)
