Kyle Sinckler’s bizarre tribute to Semi Radradra

England and Bristol Bears tighthead Kyle Sinckler clearly looks up to his teammate Semi Radradra, as most would do in the squad given the Fijian’s class.

But Sinckler paid a special tribute to his teammate this week, and it has nothing to do with his credentials on the field.

Rather than complimenting the 29-year-old’s speed, power or incredible offloading ability, the Englishman rather opted to commend his beard.

“I have spent many hours contemplating on one very important question…” Sinckler wrote on Instagram recently. “How does he get his beard looking so silky and smooth?”

Both players featured in Bristol’s disappointing loss to Sale Sharks at Ashton Gate on Friday in the Heineken Champions Cup round of 16, which ended their hopes of any silverware this season.

Bristol rugby director Pat Lam said: “Well done to Sale and Alex – fully deserved.

“In the first half, they did all the play, and we talked about it at half-time. We gave them a lead, and then gave them another lead, and we didn’t manage the last 12 minutes of the game at all well.

“It’s probably like our season. We are fighting, but we are fighting to get the game back after some simple things not done well.

“For us to go to the next level, these are things we have got to sort, and we will.

“To get ahead (on aggregate) and not manage it well at the end, we have only got ourselves to blame.

“At 24-24 we felt we had the momentum, but we gave away some silly penalties. We got one try back, then we turned the ball over and they shut the game down.

“It pretty much sums up our season – a lot of good stuff, but some simple things that were costly.”
