England prop Kyle Sinckler has never been the shy, retiring type.
His temperament was on full display at Twickenham today, with the prop giving his take on the current controversy surrounding the decision to drop Kurtley and Beale and Adam Ashley-Cooper for the England game.
It was revealed yesterday that Beale and Ashley-Cooper were axed for the clash with England for inviting women back to their hotel after the 9-6 loss to Wales.
What’s more, it was confirmed the pair were sanctioned after the breach of team protocol was raised by captain Michael Hooper and the leadership group including David Pocock, Allan Alaalatoa, Samu Kerevi and Nick Phipps.
Sinckler clearly wasn’t too taken with the action of the leadership group, and let the Australian forward pack know early in the second half. Sinckler and a number of the Australian forwards got involved after the whistle and fiery prop was happy to start ‘trolling’. Referee Jaco Peyper’s ref mic clearly picks up the prop saying: “You’re all ****ing snitches anyway”.
His comments weren’t lost to masses on social media either.

He also apparently took issue with the breath of some of the Wallabies.
Hearing Kyle sinckler saying “your breath fucking stinks” live on telly is the best thing I’ve heard in a while ??

He went on to win the Man of the Match award too.
