Sale Sharks centre Manu Tuilagi, who is set to face a trip to Cardiff Rugby in the EPCR Challenge Cup Round of 16 on April 1, has been recalled by England for their 2023 Six Nations finale against Grand Slam-chasing Ireland in Dublin on Saturday.

The 31-year-old makes his first appearance under England head coach Steve Borthwick and is joined in the matchday squad by teammate Ben Curry, who is a replacement.

Bristol Bears props Ellis Genge and Kyle Sinckler also feature in Borthwick’s starting XV at the Aviva Stadium.

The duo helped Bristol into the EPCR Challenge Cup Round of 16 with four wins from four in Pool A to secure a home tie against ASM Clermont Auvergne at Ashton Gate on March 31.
