Eddie Jones has warned tighthead prop Kyle Sinckler that his England career will be in jeopardy if he does not learn from his arrest in New Zealand.
The prop was arrested following an altercation in an Auckland nightclub hours after the Lions’ final Test against the All Blacks.
“He has to understand that the team comes before the individual,” said Jones.
“If he wants to develop his rugby career, that’ll be the big thing for him. It’s a good lesson to have and everyone will see that and learn from it. If they don’t, they are in strife.
“You need to pick the right place to have a drink. After the third Test for the Lions you don’t go to a crowded club in Auckland. You’re going to have every idiot in Auckland wanting to take him on because they know he’s a hot head.
“There’ll be some bloke saying to his mate, “Hey, go and talk to that idiot over there”.
‘The experienced players don’t go to those clubs. It’s not a black mark against him — but it will be if he does it again.’
