EXC: Sinckler OUT of England's summer Oz tour due to back injury

EXCLUSIVE: Kyle Sinckler is ruled OUT of England’s summer tour of Australia due to an ongoing back injury – with prop to rest and focus on getting fit for next season and the Rugby World Cup

Kyle Sinckler will miss England’s tour of Australia as the Bristol Bears prop continues to recover from a back injury. 

On Monday Sinckler was left out of an England training camp taking place in London this week by head coach Eddie Jones and Sportsmail understands he won’t face the Wallabies this summer. 

The British & Irish Lions forward hasn’t played since April 15 because of a back problem and rather than travelling to the southern hemisphere with England, he will instead rest and aim to be fit for a big season leading into the 2023 Rugby World Cup. 

Sinckler does not need surgery on his back, but both Bristol and England believe a period of recuperation will have the 29-year-old back to his best. 

The news is another blow for Jones who will also be without key centres Manu Tuilagi and Henry Slade for the three Tests in July against the country of his birth. More to follow.
