Tuilagi expects a tough game against USA

England Centre Manu Tuilagi is anticipating USA to be strong opponents when the two teams meet for their Rugby World Cup clash on Thursday.

Tuilagi was awarded the ‘Master Card Player of the Day’ after the 35-3 win against the Tongans in the RWC opener on Sunday.

“It’s going to be a tough game for us. Now we have finished from Tonga. More of our focus is going to be on USA.”

The Samoan-born rugby player said the match against Tongans was tough.

“We know that coming to this game, Tonga was going to be a tough test for us. But we managed to get  five points. That’s a great start for our campaign.”

“Not as much balls as I would’ve wanted but the main thing is that the team got a good win,” Tuilagi said.

The 28-year-old also said they are aiming to maintain discipline and iron out mistakes before their second game.

England will be taking on USA on Thursday night.
