    Manu Tuilagis aborted start to the season will extend to a second match as the Leicester centres wretched run with injury continues. Craig Smith Jersey .Tigers director of rugby Richard Cockerill has ruled Tuilagi out of Sundays Aviva Premiership clash with Newcastle because of the tight groin that also forced him to miss the defeat by Wasps last weekend.It is another frustrating setback for the 25-year-old, who has been severely disrupted by injury over the last two years including a career-threatening groin condition.Well look after Manu for the next couple of weeks. Hes about 80 per cent fit and if we really wanted him for Sunday we could push him, Cockerill said.But the right thing to do is to manage it and make sure that once he gets over the problem, its done for good.Its frustrating because Manu wants to play. But ultimately we have to be patient and get it right. You are always going to miss a player like Manu.In January Tuilagi returned from a 15-month absence caused by an injury known as Gilmores groin, only for his comeback to then be interrupted by two separate hamstring complaints and a knee issue.One of the hamstring problems forced him to miss Englands tour to Australia in June and it is over two years since his last international start. Miikka Salomaki Jersey .  The 19-year-old Olsen played 34 games with the Kelowna Rockets of the WHL this season. In that time, hes recorded 17 goals and 17 assists with 36 penalty minutes. Mattias Ekholm Jersey . However, he did make them miss him a little less. Cundiff, who had the unenviable job of replacing Dawson last season, agreed Thursday to a one-year, $1. . -- Ohio States Urban Meyer has never had any issue acclimating to the biggest stages in college football. Scott McLaughlin is used to being in demand but, during the Supercars meet at Pukekohe this weekend, his popularity will be off the charts.Among fans, along the grid and pit lane, McLaughlin is well liked.His appeal extends to team owners.Current boss Garry Rogers tried hard to keep the 23-year-old for another year but McLaughlin accepted a multi-million-dollar deal to join Roger Penskes emerging powerhouse garage.And theres plenty of love for the Volvo driver in the stands and on the hills - and nowhere more so than his native New Zealand, and perhaps no time more than this weekend.McLaughlin is the chief threat to Triple Eights dominance of the series, sitting in fourth place behind championship leader Shane van Gisbergen, Jamie Whincup and Craig Lowndes.I can really upset their party - their 1-2-3, he laughed.In truth, the happy-go-lucky Christchurch native is too much of a nice guy to ruin anyones day.Van Gisbergen will enjoy huge support of his own, too, given hes a chance - albeit a slim one this weekend on home soil - to become the first New Zealander to win the Supercars championship in 25 years.With a maximum of 600 points left to win at Pukekohe and Homebush in Sydney, the Aucklander is in a commanding position, 148 points ahead of Whincup and 385 clear of Lowndes. Roman Josi Jersey. McLaughlin said it added up to a win-win for the local crowds.Im not out to spoil Shane. Hes got his own thing to worry about and Ive got my own thing, he said.Everythings good for New Zealanders; theyve got plenty to pick from.They can cheer for me or someone else - Shane, Fabian (Coulthard), whoever - any time they can get a New Zealander to win, its pretty good.McLaughlin is 461 points off the mark, meaning his best hope would be to make ground on Lowndes to cement the best overall finish of his career and for his team.Weve got on top of the car as the seasons gone on, he said.Weve been pretty consistent and still been running top six or seven which isnt too bad at all.But the competition is tough. We hit a really good spot at Surfers Paradise and, if we keep it in that range, we can go well at Pukekohe.
