Kuwait Times - - SPORTS -

Manu Tuilagi and Denny Solomona have been sent home from an Eng­land train­ing camp due to “team cul­ture is­sues”, the Rugby Foot­ball Union an­nounced yes­ter­day. “Denny Solomona and Manu Tuilagi have been sent home to­day from Eng­land’s train­ing camp fol­low­ing team cul­ture is­sues,” the RFU said in a short press re­lease. “We will not be com­ment­ing fur­ther.” Bri­tain’s Press As­so­ci­a­tion said the pair were dis­ci­plined for drink­ing al­co­hol dur­ing a three-day get-to­gether in Ted­ding­ton, south­west Lon­don. Le­ices­ter cen­tre Tuilagi, 26, was only re­called to the Eng­land fold last Thurs­day, a suc­ces­sion of in­juries hav­ing pre­vented him from play­ing for his coun­try since March 2016. New Zealand-born Sale wing Solomona, 23, made his Eng­land bow dur­ing a two-Test tour of Ar­gentina in June, crown­ing his de­but with a late match-win­ning try in a 38-34 win in San Juan. —AFP
