Manu Tuilagi set to make return for Leicester after long-term injury

Manu Tuilagi will make his comeback from a groin problem when Leicester face Bristol on Friday night.

Tuilagi has been sidelined since the opening match of the season in order to heal a persistent injury that has interrupted the last two years of his career, but has been named on the bench for the Aviva Premiership showdown.

"Manu Tuilagi is named among the replacements in his comeback from a groin injury," a Leicester statement read.
