With Gloucester Rugby’s stars enjoying some well needed rest after their exploits in the Gallagher Premiership in the last few weeks, their rivals have been busy tying down their key men to new contracts.
Manu Tuilagi to stay a Tiger
The biggest transfer rumour of the year has finally come to it’s end. Despite being linked with a big money move to Racing 92 in France, Leicester Tigers have announced that Manu Tuilagi has renewed his contract at Welford Road.

The Center has been unlucky with injuries in recent years, but this year has seen Tuilagi surge back into the England camp and find some of his best form.

Whilst this is good news for Leicester, England fans should also rejoice. Despite being 27 years old, Tuilagi still has his best years ahead in the white shirt, and now he is staying in the UK means he will continue to play for England in years to come.
