Out of character.
Sale winger Denny Solomona is keen to right his wrongs after being sent home along with Many Tuilagi from England camp. Head coach Eddie Jones was left with no choice but to send the pair home after they allegedly returned to camp at 4am after a night out, intoxicated.
“What happened was out of character. It was definitely a mistake on my behalf. I’ll work harder to get back,” he told BBC Sport.
“I put that person behind me a long time ago.”
Jones has not disciplined England individuals for off-the-field behaviour prior to this incident, with the pair being told to train harder and prove themselves.
“[Jones] has just said to train harder and play harder and that’s what I’ll do. I need to do what he says. That’s the only way I’ll achieve what I want to achieve,” Solomona continued.
“By training hard, I’ll improve my game capabilities and I’ll learn a lot more. And in the game, I’ll go as hard as I can and give everything I’ve got every single game.
“I’m hungry for it. I’m eager for it and I’m only going to train harder and play as good as I can to let my rugby do my talking.”
