England's Sinckler entertains 'abuse'
IN THE SPOTLIGHT: After receiving a yellow card in Harlequins European Champions Cup match with Ulster in Ravenhill, Kyle Sinckler has reacted to a tirade of social media criticism.
Sinckler was yellow carded for bodychecking Jacob Stockdale in the 60th minute of their Pool 1 encounter, a move many have labelled as needless and which has seen the young tighthead cop a lot of heat on Twitter.

He also seemed to have a back and forth with a number of the Ravenhill faithful while getting sent off and after the match.
Sinckler responded in a rather level-headed fashion, and thanked his trolls, branding their ‘abuse’ refreshing.
I do love twitter and all the abuse I get on here it’s refreshing 😊— Kyle Sinckler (@KyleSinckler) December 16, 2017
In October Harlequins defended the tighthead after he was banned for sevens weeks.
The Harlequins prop was cited for making contact with the eye and eye area of Northampton Saints’ Michael Paterson, during the second half of the match between Northampton and Harlequins on the September 30.
