REACTION: Denny Solomona's exit from the England Training Camp has disappointed his Premiership club the Sale Sharks.

Solomona, along with Manu Tuilagi, were sent home from England's training camp on Monday following "team culture issues", the Rugby Football Union said in a statement.

However, Britain's Press Association later confirmed the pair were disciplined for drinking alcohol during a three-day get-together in Teddington, southwest London.

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.

Sharks Director of Rugby Steve Diamond said: "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 on the recent England tour to Argentina.

"This matter has been dealt with by the RFU and I will speak to Denny on his return to Carrington," he added.
