Kyle Sinckler thanks Eddie Jones and visit from barber for return to form
- Prop admits he was performing at 20% of ability
- Sinckler moved to Bristol during lockdown
The England prop Kyle Sinckler has admitted that a mid-lockdown move to Bristol left him performing at just 20% of his ability but credited Eddie Jones’s faith in him – and a visit from his barber – for helping getting back to his best.
The 27-year-old was one of the standout players against Ireland, making 16 tackles as part of a dominant performance by England, who have this week been bolstered by the return from injury of Luke Cowan-Dickie and Anthony Watson for Saturday’s trip to Wales.
