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.
A very brief statement from the RFU states that both players have been sent home due to ‘team culture issues’.

The RFU have stated that they will not be commenting further. This just comes after some glowing praise for Tuilagi in particular from Eddie Jones who during his press conference last week stated that the Leicester Tigers centre was “worth the effort.”
“But I do know he can demolish the All Blacks, so he’s worth the time, worth the effort, he’s worth a lot of care.”
You can watch some of Jones’ comments from that earlier press conference below in which he praises Tuilagi.
