Billy Vunipola and Ben Te'o have apologised to team-mates after they returned late from a drinking session following England's 38-38 Guinness Six Nations draw with Scotland.

The pair broke team rules by staying out until the early hours of Sunday morning when the rest of the squad had gone back to their hotel in west London.

It is understood that England consider the matter dealt with and there will be no repercussions from head coach Eddie Jones.

Players are allowed to drink to under Jones and while there is no curfew in place, it is expected that the team stay together while out.

It is only the second beach of discipline since Jones took over in December 2015 - the first saw Manu Tuilagi and Denny Solomona sent home from a pre-season training camp in 2017 because of a similar offence.

England finished runners-up in the recent Six Nations following a defeat to Grand Slam winners Wales and draw with Scotland.

Cardiff Blues have announced the signing of Wales winger Josh Adams from Worcester ahead of next season.

The 23-year-old helped Wales to win the Grand Slam in the Guinness Six Nations last week and scored three tries during the tournament, including efforts against England and Scotland.

"It is great to be returning to Wales and I cannot wait to link up with Cardiff Blues next season," he said on Cardiff Blues' website.

"It is a young and exciting squad, with a good blend of experience, which has a bright future and I'm looking forward to contributing towards that.

"I will always be grateful to Worcester Warriors for giving me the opportunity to become a professional player and I have loved my time at Sixways.

"But to play for Wales I need to play in Wales and Cardiff Blues is the best fit for me. I'm really looking forward to the next chapter at Cardiff Arms Park."

Adams was the Premiership's joint-top scorer last season with 13 tries.

Cardiff Blues head coach John Mulvihill is confident he can further develop his potential and match the Welsh club's own drive for success.

"It's an exciting signing for the region and demonstrates our strong rugby ambition going forward," Mulvihill said.
