Lions star apologises after arrest on British & Irish Lions tour of New Zealand

Lions prop Kyle Sinckler has apologised for “any inconvenience caused” after he was arrested during a night out in Auckland at the weekend.

Lions tour manager John Spencer confirmed that the 24-year-old Harlequins prop had apologised and been reminded of his responsibilities.

Spencer said in a statement: “We have been informed by Auckland police about an incident involving Kyle. I have spoken to Kyle and reminded him of his responsibilities as a Lion, which extend to his off the field behaviour.


“Kyle has apologised for any inconvenience caused and we are satisfied that he regrets this incident and that this is the end of the matter.”

An Auckland police spokesperson said: “Police can confirm they attended an incident involving minor disorder in central Auckland early on Sunday morning (July 9).

“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. “Police has no further comment on this incident.”
