Denny Solomona scored a late try on his debut to help England beat Argentina 38-34 in June

Sale winger Denny Solomona says he is determined to win back his England place after being sent home early from a pre-season training camp.

The 23-year-old was disciplined along with Leicester’s Manu Tuilagi because of “team culture issues” on 7 August.

The pair were believed to have gone out drinking and contravened the team’s standards of behaviour.

“What happened was out of character, it was definitely a mistake on my behalf. I’ll work harder to get back.” he said.

“I put that person behind me a long time ago.”

During the camp, it is understood the England players went out as a squad to dinner, and returned to their hotel as a group but Tuilagi and Solomona then left the hotel for a second time, returning in the early hours of the morning, thought to be as late as 04:00 BST.

England snatch win with late Solomona try

It is the first time since taking on the role that England head coach Eddie Jones has disciplined individuals for off-the-field behaviour.

“He (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.”
