The youngest in a family of six brothers, who have all played international for Samoa and professionally for Leicester. Tuilagi was named Manusamoa, after the national rugby side.
He followed his older siblings to England as a teenager and chose to represent his adopted country, debuting against Wales in a 2011 World Cup warm-up match to cement his starting spot throughout the tournament.
Tuilagi starred in England's record 38-21 win over the All Blacks at Twickenham in 2012, featuring in all three tries, but has been plagued by injury ever since.
In a bid to solve his injury problems, he reportedly visited a Samoan witch doctor, who found three spirits haunting Tuilagi and massaged him for two hours a day for four days to drive them away.
