Rugby World Cup 2011: Tuilagi has to start - Cockerill

Leicester boss Richard Cockerill says Manu Tuilagi has the "X-factor" and could be the star of the upcoming Rugby World Cup in New Zealand as he is "as good as anybody".

The Samoan-born Leicester Tigers player made his England debut in the 23-19 World Cup warm-up win over Wales recently and had an immediate impact by scoring a try.
