Lions Prop Apologises After Being Arrested In New Zealand On Sunday

Lions Prop Apologises After Being Arrested In New Zealand On Sunday
By David Kent

We can understand the British and Irish Lions being a bit celebratory after the tour concluded on Saturday morning. After all, it was six weeks of rugby, for a pretty decent chunk of money. Plus, they can forever say that they went to New Zealand for three tests - and avoided defeat twice.

While the idea of the Lions tour ending as a draw annoyed some fans, it didn't seem to bother the players. They were in high spirits as they went out in Auckland on Saturday night. Some of them were in too high of a spirit. Particularly Kyle Sinckler.

The England and Harlequins tighthead was arrested on Sunday morning at around 3am for a 'minor disorder'. The statement from Auckland police read:

Police can confirm they attended an incident involving minor disorder in central Auckland early on Sunday morning.

A male was placed under arrest but was not charged after further inquiries established that the incident did not warrant prosecution.

He was then taken to his accommodation by police. Auckland police has no further comment on this incident.

Sinckler made seven appearances on the tour, most notably winning the crucial penalty which won the second test for the Lions. We gave him a 5.5 for his efforts in New Zealand in our overall player ratings.


In a short statement, Sinckler apologised to those he had caused a bit of bother to:

I apologise for putting myself and the Lions in this position. I also apologise to the police and anyone else affected

He said sorry, let's all move on!
