This weekend the 16th Man takes to the seas and skies as the Red Army #InvadeMarseille for the Heineken Cup semi-final. Here's your guide to what's going on and how to get around Marseille.
In the semi final the 24 year old scorched in for two superb tries and was replaced immediately after he added the conversion of the second, to be kept fresh for the final.
It proved a clever ploy as Manning played a central role in what was a close final and a tense finish.
Manning also scored a try in the earlier round game against Leicester Tigers.
In the main event London Irish were beaten 15-12 by the Samurai side.
