PROPZILLA Kyle Sinckler will show no mercy towards Japan after a bone-shattering performance against the All Blacks.

The England beefcake pretended he was a dinosaur as a kid, now he just plays like an angry, rampaging T-Rex every week instead.

Lions hero Sinckler even did so much damage against New Zealand that he heard Jack Goodhue’s ribs CRACK in one of his trademark hits.

And Sinckler warned the Brave Blossoms: “One of things I love about rugby is that you can always let some frustration out in tackle. Goodhue felt that, which is nice, I heard his ribs crack a little bit.”

Boss Eddie Jones wants his side to “smash” Japan at Twickenham.

After hearing that, big-hitting Sinck said: “That is music to my ears. I can’t wait.”

And when asked if he would take a huge scrum over a brutal hit, the prop said: “It depends who I am hitting and if I don’t like him or not! As a tighthead your bread and butter is your scrums, so you have got to take a good scrum against a good pack like New Zealand. It is nice to get in their faces and give them a taste of their own medicine.

“And Japan are a decent team too. Obviously Eddie used to coach them, so he has got decent knowledge, not only of Japan, but the culture and the way they think.

“Our main focus is to back up the All Blacks performance and show what a top quality side we think we are.”

Half-Japanese Jones has shortened England’s training week to mimic the four-day turnaround between the Tonga and USA games at the start of the Japan World Cup next year.

And off it he is getting his side used to chopsticks and sushi at their Bagshot training base.

Sinckler, 25, revealed: “I didn’t know if it was a test or not – you never know with Eddie. I had a bit of sushi, but there was a point where we had to say no.

Wednesday is normally our hardest session of the week and you don’t want to be running round with two kilos of sushi sitting in you.

“We came to a meeting and there was a chopstick on every chair and Eddie made some joke that every player has got to eat with chopsticks throughout the week otherwise you are in trouble. I was like: ‘Oh God, looks like room service for me!’“

Harlequins star Sinckler is finally fulfilling his potential again at Test level after a roller-coaster 18 months.

He was arrested on a night out in Auckland at the end of the Lions tour and then banned for seven-weeks for gouging in October 2017.

The 15 capper added: “It has been quite tough. Every time in the Premiership someone wants to get one up on me because I’m a Lion and it’s a big scalp. I think that took some adjustment. That season I let my frustrations get the best of me. I got in trouble, got a bit of a ban. It was a tough old ride, but you learn who you are as person.

“When your back is against the wall it’s the true test of who you are. I’m happy with how I dealt with things, but I’ve made some mistakes along the way.

“I probably will still make some mistakes, but it’s just about learning from it.”
