Barritt: Manu loss no worry

ENGLAND’S Brad Barritt insists they can overcome the absence of fellow centre Manu Tuilagi and begin their RBS Six Nations campaign with a win over Scotland on Saturday.

Gloucester’s Billy Twelvetrees is tipped to replace Tuilagi when the England XV is named today and Barritt said: “Manu’s a fantastic player and an asset to any team, but no team is reliant on one person.”
