Kyle Sinclair injured in England’s practice squad for the tour of Australia

Star prop Kyle Sinclair is the latest big name to be dropped from England’s three-Test rugby tour of Australia in July.

Sinclair is battling a long-term back injury in the Six Nations and has not played for Bristol since April.

England and Bristol have agreed to allow Sinclair to concentrate on his rehabilitation and he has joined Manu Tuilagi, Henry Slade and Sam Symonds to miss out on a down-under trip.

England coach Eddie Jones has named a 35-man training squad that does not include players from the England Premiership semifinals – Leicester, Saracens, Harlequins and Northampton.

Veteran winger Johnny May and Jack Novell were included after successful returns to Gloucester and Exeter, respectively.

Uncapped pundits Charlie Atkinson, Biay Alo, Freddie Clark, Sam Jeffries and Patrick Shikarling also cut.

Hooker Luke Cowan-Dickey (knee) and winger Anthony Watson (calf) have not been officially named but will be in rehabilitation camps.

“With so many players unavailable due to the Premiership semifinals, we’ve had the opportunity to call in some new players,” Jones said.

“This is a great opportunity to learn about them and see what the potential is for their role in the tour of Australia. We look forward to continuing to do well to build this team on and off the field from our last camp.”
