    Manu Tuilagi is set to miss Englands autumn Tests after Leicester director of rugby Richard Cockerill revealed he will be out for another six to eight weeks with a groin problem.Tuilagi has been plagued by injury problems for the last two years but made his comeback in Leicesters first game of the season against Gloucester.However the 25-year-old centre has not played since and Cockerill says it could be mid-November before he returns. England take on South Africa at Twickenham on November 12 and are scheduled to play another three Tests against Fiji, Argentina and Australia.Cockerill said: He has still got a tight groin. We are hoping he will be back on the field within six to eight weeks. Its tough, tough for everyone. We will support him, and hes working hard.When we get to six to eight weeks, we will see. It might be another three.He is a world-class player. He doesnt want to be injured, we dont want him to be injured. We want him on the field. His groin is not right, and we are going to get it right. When its right he will play. At the moment we are hoping it will be six to eight weeks - if its not, its not.He is running and its nowhere as severe as it was. Its tight, and we want to get rid of that.Leicester did not miss Tuilagi on Sunday as they ended Baths 100 per cent record with a 34-14 home win.? Custom Paul Konerko Jersey . It was hard for Luck to pull off another comeback, or even get into the end zone, while standing on the sideline.

(STATS) -- Theres still plenty on the line in the Missouri Valley Football Conference heading into the final weekend.While No. 4 North Dakota State is looking to extend its conference title streak, eighth-ranked South Dakota State and No. 15 Youngstown State have an opportunity to end their championship droughts Saturday. Northern Iowa, meanwhile, is in a must-win situation to reach the postseason and No. 23 Western Illinois hopes to add to its playoff resume.To have three teams essentially with one or two losses, I think is pretty impressive, NDSU coach Chris Klieman said of the title chase. It shows you the parity in the league and that every game -- even this week -- has a great impact on (the) postseason.Kliemans Bison (9-1, 6-1) are tied with South Dakota State (7-3, 6-1) atop the MVFC and can clinch at least a share of their sixth straight league crown with a win at South Dakota (4-6, 3-4). They captured outright titles in 2012 and 13 and also shared the 2011 crown with Northern Iowa and the 14 and 15 hardware with Illinois State.NDSU, which was rated No. 1 by the NCAA Division I FCS selection committee in the rankings that precede Sundays announcement of the 24-team playoff pairings, will try to avenge a loss to the Coyotes last season. South Dakota snapped the Bisons 26-game home winning streak with a 24-21 victory at the Fargodome on Oct. 17.NDSU should be feeling confident after Darrius Shepherds 84-yard punt return touchdown and Easton Sticks two first-quarter TD runs keyed its fourth straight win, 41-17 over Indiana State last weekend. It should help that King Frazier, who led the team in rushing before getting hurt, and Tre Dempsey, the clubs leader in interceptions, are expected to return from injuries.Were excited that the difficult schedule we have had and the adversity weve faced with injuries and stuff that weve put ourselves in a position at least to play for another conference championship, Klieman said.SDSU holds tiebreakers over NDSU and Youngstown State (7-3, 5-2), meaning the Jackrabbbits would receive the MVFCs automatic bid to the FCS playoffs should they end up even with NDSU or in a three-way tie with NDSU and YSU.ddddddddddddTheyll try to take care of business on the road against desperate Northern Iowa (5-5, 4-3), which needs a victory to have a chance at the postseason. The Panthers, winners in their last two, have allowed just 15 points per game over their last four.Senior defensive end Karter Schult leads UNI with 67 tackles and 16 sacks. He was named MVFC defensive player of the week after finishing with three sacks in Saturdays 30-23 win over then-No. 19 Western Illinois (6-4, 3-4).Led by sophomore quarterback Taryn Christion, the Jackrabbits rank second in the league with 317 passing yards per game. They showcased a different side of their offense with a season-best 415 rushing yards in Saturdays 28-21 win over South Dakota.Now SDSU is hoping to utilize a balanced approach as it seeks at least a share of its first title since joining the MVFC in 2008.Their fans will show up and try to affect this game, Jackrabbits coach John Stiegelmeier said. This is a playoff game for them with a chance to maybe get into the playoffs and a chance for us to win a conference championship.Third-place Youngstown State needs a win at Missouri State (4-6, 2-5) and losses by NDSU and SDSU to claim a share of its first conference championship since 2006. The Penguins bounced back from a 24-3 loss at NDSU on Nov. 5 with a 21-14 win over Southern Illinois last weekend, while the Bears have dropped five of six following Saturdays 37-0 loss at Illinois State.YSU has won the past two meetings, including 47-7 at home last November.Its the next one on the schedule, Penguins coach Bo Pelini said. I havent really been a part of the whole playoff selection and how that works. Thats out of your control and you just have to go win the football game and whatever happens, happens. ' ' '
