Regarding the recent incidents, and in particular that of the night out involving Mike Tindall where he had a couple of drinks, Cueto feels it is the press trying to make news.

“We’re talking about two incidents in four or five weeks, things have happened. We have learned from them. We have had to learn from them and we have improved our discipline off the field.”

Asked if he felt England were losing their grip on standards within the game, Cueto replied:

“I don’t think standards have slipped. With the Tindall thing, we are talking about a couple of guys going out for a few beers. What is wrong with that? If the boys can’t go out and have a few beers then it is a sad world that we live in.”
