Manu Tuilagi

Samoan born Manu Tuilagi  currently plays in the Aviva Premiership for the Leicester Tigers and for England.  The youngest of six brothers in a Samoan rugby dynasty, Tuilagi was the first to announce his allegiance to England Rugby.  In June 2010, Tuilagi faced deportation from the United Kingdom after it emerged that he had entered the country on a holiday visa six years earlier and had stayed on illegally. After an appeal, he was later granted indefinite leave to remain.  Tuilagi has since been a regular name in the side, including the 2011 RWC squad.
