Leicester Tigers and England star Manu Tuilagi will be fit to play for the British & Irisn Lions in Australia tomorrow.

Tuilagi suffered a shoulder problem during the victory over Queensland Reds 16 days ago, the same game in which Tommy Bowe broke his hand.

The centre says he's relieved the injury has cleared up in time for the tour's final midweek fixture against Melbourne Rebels.

Tuilagi will forge a Lions midfield partnership alongside his England colleague Brad Barritt tomorrow as the tourists look to bounce back from last week's loss against the Brumbies in Canberra.
