Debutant Tuilagi has made peace with Ashton

Samoan-born England centre Manu Tuilagi says he and Chris Ashton are now "tight team-mates" after they came to blows in the Heineken Cup.

The Leicester star says it will be "unreal" to line-up outside World Cup-winner Jonny Wilkinson in his international debut.

Tuilagi will win his first England cap against Wales in the World Cup warm-up at Twickenham on Saturday.
