England players Manu Tuilagi and Denny Solomona have been sent home from a training camp over “team culture issues”, says the Rugby Football Union.
The RFU did not comment further but the issue is thought to be alcohol-related.
Leicester Tigers released the following statement:
“Sale Sharks are disappointed to learn that Denny Solomona has been sent home from the England Training Camp.” read the statement.
Sharks Director of Rugby Steve Diamond added: “This is disappointing news because Denny has worked so hard since joining the club last December. He hasn’t had much time off and his performances earned him a place of the recent England tour to Argentina.
