England star Kyle Sinckler can “emotionally, be a bit of a time-bomb”, according to Wales head coach Warren Gatland.
Gatland said: “I think the thing with Kyle, there is no doubt he’s a very good player in terms of his carrying, scrummaging and work-rate.
“There is a challenge sometimes with his temperament. He’s aware of it. Other players are aware of it. We’ve already seen in the Six Nations that he has been involved in a couple of incidents.

“Hopefully, we don’t get dragged into that on Saturday. Emotionally, he can be a bit of a time-bomb. I am not saying anything that people aren’t aware of.
“Look, we won’t be going out there trying to antagonise him, because that’s not in our make-up. We will just go out there and play.
“Hopefully, he goes out and has a good game and is able to keep his emotions in control, because that’s a big challenge for him.”
