Tuilagi gets green light
30 May 2012
England centre Manu Tuilagi has been found not guilty of dangerous play and will tour South Africa next month.
Tuilagi attended a disciplinary hearing on Tuesday to answer a charge that he had tip-tackled Harlequins scrumhalf Danny Care in last Saturday’s Premiership final.
The judiciary was satisfied that referee Wayne Barnes got it right in not sending Tuilagi off and felt the tackle deserved no further sanction.
Tuilagi is now free to take part in England’s three Tests against South Africa.
