England manager Stuart Lancaster reportedly names Manu Tuilagi as a substitute for this Sunday's Six Nations clash with Ireland.

Manu Tuilagi will start on the bench for England's Six Nations clash with Ireland this weekend, according to a report.

Manager Stuart Lancaster is keeping the faith in midfielders Brad Barritt and Billy Twelvetrees after they impressed during last weekend's opener against Scotland, The Mirror claims.

Lancaster will allegedly make only one change from the Scotland victory, with James Haskell replacing the injured Ben Morgan.

Tuilagi missed England's Six Nations opener with an ankle injury.
