Bristol Bears tighthead prop Kyle Sinckler is unlikely to be part of England’s tour to Australia due to a back injury which has kept him on the sidelines recently.

According to a PA news report, Sinckler will not have an operation for the injury although he will be rested and undergo rehabilitation as part of his recovery ahead of the 2022/23 season.

The 29-year-old has been sidelined since Bristol were knocked out of the Champions Cup by Sale Sharks during the tournament’s round-of-16 stage just over six weeks ago.

Experienced player

Sinckler, who has played in more than 50 internationals for England and made six Test appearances for the British & Irish Lions on their tours to New Zealand and South Africa in 2017 and 2021, has been one of the star performers for his country since his debut against the Springboks at Twickenham on 2016.

On Monday, Sinckler was left out of England coach Eddie Jones’ 35-man England squad for a three-day training camp during the week.

England and the Wallabies will clash in Perth on July 2, Brisbane on July 9 and Sydney on July 16.
