'Cultural issues': Manu Tuilagi and Denny Solomona sent home from England camp

News has broken this Monday morning that Denny Solomona and Manu Tuilagi have both been sent home from England training camp due to apparent disciplinary reasons.

Jones is to decide if further disciplinary action is required, casting a shadow over their global futures beginning with the autumn series against Argentina, Australia and Samoa.

Tuilagi and Solomona missed the final session of their three-day gathering in Teddington having been disciplined for an incident described by the Rugby Football Union as "team culture issues".

The news will cast further doubt over Tuilagi's worldwide future, given the Leicester Tigers star has been beset by injuries over the last two seasons and has not played for England since the 2016 Six Nations.

The RFU have stated that they will not be commenting further.

"I don't think we have any at the moment but we are developing players who are going to be like that".

Tuilagi's career has been blighted by knee and groin injuries for four years, and he was ruled out of the 2015 Rugby World Cup after being convicted of assaulting a taxi driver and two female police officers on a night out.

"This matter has been dealt with by the RFU and we will talk to Manu on his return to the club".

Solomona was called up after making his debut on England's successful tour of Argentina in June.

The 30-year-old has extensive experience in American club rugby as well as playing for Wellington Lions in New Zealand last year.
