Rugby Inside Line has reported that both Saracens and Sale Sharks are interested in Kyle Sinckler despite him having one more year at Harlequins.
He is currently behind Exeter’s Harry Williams in the England tighthead pecking order, but the Quins prop has a ball carrying ability that makes him a different kind of rugby beast, one with a temper he knows must be controlled.
England coach Eddie Jones made it clear that Sinckler had to improve his discipline having been arrested, but not charged, after a night out in Auckland after the final British and Irish Lions test in New Zealand.
Jones said then: “He’s got to understand that the team comes before the individual. If we wants to develop his rugby career, that’ll be the big thing for him.”
The 24-year-old then made life tough for himself when he was banned for seven weeks in October for gouging while playing for Quins against Northampton which ruled him out of England’s Autumn tests.
Having made up for lost ground, he then injured his hamstring on the eve of England’s pre-Six Nations training camp in Portugal with the initial diagnosis putting him out for six weeks and ruining his hopes of making the Championship.
However, Sinckler has got back in just three weeks and continued his fight to get the match fitness needed for test rugby in the Quins front row against Leicester on Saturday.
