Kyle Sinckler

30th Mar 1993 1.80m/120kg Tighthead Prop

The talented young prop is a Harlequins man through and through, having started out with the cub at Under-13 level, he has come through the academy system and has become a first team regular.

He graduated from the Harlequins Academy squad after playing his first game for the club in their 42–6 thrashing over Gloucester in round 2 of the 2011–12 Aviva Premiership.

Sinckler highly contributed to Harlequins' 2012–13 LV Cup-winning campaign, playing in four out of the six games, including the semi-final against Bath.

He has represented England at Under-16, U18, U19 and U20 levels and showed massive potential at a young age. He represented the U20 in 2012 & 2013 6 Nations, winning the title on bench occasions. Appeared at the 2012 U20 World Championship in SA.

After 85 appearances for Harlequins, he signed a new deal with the club.

Sinckler took up rugby in Battersea when he was eight after being considered too aggressive for the football field. In October 2016, he became one of 6 players to get included into England's 33-man squad for the 2016 Wealth Series.
The Harlequins player came on to make his debut for the last 10 minutes in the win over South Africa.

The prop known for his gainline busting speed could have a long future in the front row of the England team. Kyle was selected in the England Six Nations squad for the 2017 tournament, where he once again showed his thunderous tackling and line-breaking ability. His ball carrying, aggression and tackling are strong aspects of his game. He appeared 4 times in the 6 Nations, all off the bench.

In April 2017, Sinckler was surprisingly announced in the British & Irish Lions 41-man squad after just 8 England caps.

As of June 2018, Sinckler has earned 11 Test caps for England.

Sinckler, named for the 2019 Six Nations squad has had 6 previous 6 Nations appearances. He has yet to score any points.
