Manu Tuilagi shows his ball skills and chunky arms
Get the nips out for the lads, Manu shows off his beef
Born in Samoa in 1991, Manu has 5 (yes FIVE) older brothers who have ALL played national rugby for the nation. What we’d give to be a fly on the wall in that house! They must have to have a specially made dinner able to get all those massive thighs underneath!

Despite being the baby of the family, he’s still 6 foot 1 and weighs in at a whopping 17.4 stone. He currently plays for the Sale Sharks with a fetching blue and white kit here in the UK as part of the Rugby Union who are based in Cheshire and have been for a remarkable 160 years! Manu plays centre and has played for the British and Irish Lions as he became a British citizen in 2014.
Rugby is a violent business at times and Manu has the scars to prove it

He has had some injuries of late, Alex Sanderson, the Sharks’ director of rugby said recently: “For seven or eight years, he’s only ever played 12 games in a season. I think he knows that if he gets another serious injury, that might be it. That might be his career. If you fail to learn from history, you are doomed to repeat it. Even though he’s really fresh now and good to go, I don’t want to be another coach in a long line of coaches who pushes him too hard so he gets re-injured at some point in the season.”
Giant thighs are par for the course in pro rugby

He continued: “You’ve got to look at his past history and when he wants those games to occur, not just to keep playing him because he feels fresh. That’s what has broken him every other time. Of course, I want to play him because he’s great for the team and is in good form, but this is more about him as an individual, getting him through the season and getting him fit for England”
