All of my rugby-loving friends share a great deal of affection for player Manu Tuilagi. Internationally he plays for the England side, a team which beat France in a Six Nations game 23-13 over the weekend, with a try from Tuilagi helping to seal the win for the England side.
You can see what inspired this post right away, since I’m quite the sports lover. I spent some time a few days ago trying to explain the scoring system to a friend of mine who is basically clueless about sport in general. In return, he’s teaching me the basics of Skyrim.
A good deal, I think.
Going back to Manu, at a club level, he plays for Leicester Tigers, as did several of his elder brothers. You see, Manu is the youngest of seven brothers, of which at least 4 other brothers have at some point played for Leicester.
All the brothers are Samoan in origin, with Manu being the only one of the rugby-players to represent England rather than his home country of Samoa, and he has explained preference as being because of the length of time he’s spent playing in England.
