Manu Tuilagi is charged by the RFU for a 'tip tackle' against Danny Care during Leicester's Premiership final defeat to Harlequins.

England and Leciester centre Manu Tuilagi has been cited for a 'tip tackle' committed during the Tigers' Premiership final defeat to Harlequins.

The 21-year-old will face a charge for committing the tackle on Harlequins' Danny Care during the Tigers' 30-23 defeat to Quins at Twickenham last weekend.

If found guilty, Tuilagi could face a lengthy ban, which will rule him out of England's three-test series tour of South Africa.

Tuilagi has yet to comment on the charge from the Rugby Football Union.
