Is this the Kyle Sinckler bite?

WATCH as British and Irish Lions prop Kyle Sinckler appears to sink his teeth into the arm of South African lock Franco Mostert.


Sinckler could be facing a lengthy ban after he was cited for biting in the second Test loss (9-27) against South Africa this past Saturday.

The incident is alleged to have taken place during a ruck in the 64th minute of the match at the Cape Town Stadium.

Sinckler, who has a chequered disciplinary record, will be hit with a minimum 12-week ban if the citing is upheld by Tuesday’s disciplinary hearing.

That was not the only incident of foul play that has received plenty of airtime since the match.

B&I Lions lock Maro Itoje escape sanction or a citing, despite pushing his knee into the neck of Springbok centre Damian de Allende.

Watch the incidents below.
