Injury-plagued Tuilagi missed most of last season with groin and knee problems.

And now he is back on the treatment table for another spell.

The 26-year-old played a full 80 minutes in Tigers’ opening-day defeat to Bath.

But scans later showed that he had suffered knee ligament damage.

And he now needs another operation.

Tigers boss Matt O’Connor said: “This is not the knee that Manu injured last season.

“And this is not a major injury in the context of what kept him out for the first half of this year.

“Manu has worked really hard with the medical and conditioning teams to come back from long-term injury and was starting to find his feet again on the pitch.

“But he’s just been very unlucky with this one.

“It was an innocuous bump, a freak incident in the game.

“On closer inspection there is some damage to the meniscus which needs to be addressed.

“We look forward to having him back at the end of his recovery period.”

England rugby coach Eddie Jones says Manu Tuilagi needs to get fit, focused and stay out of the pubs
