Eddie Jones has fired a stern warning at prop Kyle Sinckler over his disciplinary issues.
Sinckle was arrested for “minor disorder” in Auckland while on tour with the British and Irish Lions, but released without charge hours after the Test.
Jones hopes the 24-year-old tighthead prop has learned an important lesson.
“It is not a black mark against him but it will be if he does it again,” Jones told reporters.
“Everyone can tell you what you shouldn’t do but you have got to experience it yourself.
“It’s a good lesson to have and I think everyone will see that and learn from it. If they don’t learn from it they are in strife.”
Jones says an experienced player would not have made the same mistake .
“You need to pick the right place to have a drink. After the third Test for the Lions you don’t go to a crowded club in Auckland,” Jones said.
“You’re going to have every idiot in Auckland wanting to take him on because they know he’s a hot head.
“The experienced players don’t go to those clubs. They find a quiet place to have a drink because they know that night’s going to be volatile and some Kiwi will want to make a name for himself.”
