England Teammate Comments On Tuilagi & Solomona Being Sent Home
No one is above the law.
Centre Manu Tuilagi and winger Denny Solomona were sent home from England’s training camp for disciplinary reasons yesterday morning. Both players were sent home for disrupting the ‘team culture’ according to an official statement by England Rugby.
Scrumhalf Danny Care was asked about the pair being sent home and had this to say:
“It’s something that Eddie has dealt with. They’ve breached the code of conduct that the players try and live by,” Care told Press Association Sport.
“It shows that no one is above the law. That’s the way it has been since Eddie has taken over.
“He knows the strength in depth there is in the country at the moment and the number of players he can pick from, so you don’t want to make many mistakes because you never know what’s going to happen.
“There’s a code of conduct we’re all signed up for and if you choose to bend the rules or break them, you know the coach will make a decision. As players it’s about making the right decisions at the right time. We’re given a lot of licence by the coaches to make the right decisions.
“People know what is right and wrong and what to do at the right time and whatever happened last night [Sunday] wasn’t the right time.”
