'It could be the last game': Tuilagi to leave England?

SPOTLIGHT: England centre Manu Tuilagi said on Friday he is unsure if this weekend’s Six Nations finale with France will be his final game for his country.

Tuilagi, 32, has been linked with a move to French clubs Perpignan, Bayonne and Montpellier at the end of the season, which would make him ineligible for England.

“Every time I get to represent England it could be the last game,” Tuilagi told reporters before Saturday’s game in Lyon.

“Every game could be your last game, so you have got to make the most of it and enjoy it,” he added.

Tuilagi has been named on the bench to face Les Bleus and is set for his first England appearance since October’s World Cup third-place play-off victory.

The visitors can claim an improbable Six Nations title by scoring four tries or more in a victory over France and hope table-topping Ireland lose to Scotland by more than seven points earlier in the day in the final round of the competition.

“I feel very blessed to be able to get back into the team,” Tuilagi said before a potential 60th Test appearance.

“We’ve got an unbelievable team.

“For me to be able to get this opportunity again, I love it,” he added.
