Team manager Jon Roberts said Josh Hodgson will face disciplinary action for crashing through a door on purpose. The video was posted on YouTube.

He said players were given permission to go out after last night's defeat by New Zealand.

Management are looking at all footage of last night's incident and would not say if or how many other players may be investigated.

Mr Roberts said the English team had made arrangements for the repair of damage to the flat.
