► Kyle Sinckler’s former teacher has shed light on the England star’s incredible journey from a teenager without a team to the Rugby World Cup Final.
Stacia Long told 5 News’ Nick Wallis that a 13-year-old Sinckler asked her to set up the school's first rugby team.
It was the start of stunning adventure for both of them – while the former pupil is now a top player, Ms Long went from rugby novice to becoming a top coach.
The pair are still in close contact and his Harlequins teammates tease him for still calling his old teacher ‘Miss’.
