Rugby fans think they spotted Kyle Sinckler's comment to referee during Ireland vs England

The Six Nations returned this weekend, and after Wales got their campaign off to a winning start in Paris on Friday night, all eyes turned to Dublin, as the champions Ireland took on the challengers in England.

Earlier today, Scotland defeated Italy, as expected, but the main event was certainly the late kick off between the favourites and the second favourites.

Ireland completed the Grand Slam in last year's tournament, whilst Eddie Jones' England finished a disappointing fifth, only ahead of the whipping boys Italy.

However, it was all different this year as England completed an impressive win away from home, and it was all a bit too much for one player in particular.

Kyle Sinckler was clearly overjoyed to be beating the Irish, and whilst celebrating one of the Red Rose's tries, he celebrated a bit too wildly.

So much so, the match official actually had to tell him to calm down a little bit.

Then, viewers at home all spotted what Sinckler said in response, and they believe he said: "I'm just very excited... tell me to shut up if you need."

Superb from Sinckler, and it's good to see him enjoying playing rugby for England.

Speaking after the game, England rugby legend Matt Dawson said on the win: "There is a huge amount of humility around this England squad. They've been to extreme highs and down in the depths.

"They've had rugby life experience. This will be part of Ireland's rugby life experience now. In the short term, it is no great disaster.

"England now are thinking that all those low times that they've been through in the last year were for these types of moments."

Denis Hickie, the former Ireland winger, on the other hand, said: "Ireland fans should feel confident after the team's 2018, but I don't think the team have been overconfident. They will be very hard on themselves after that game.

"Ireland were favourites last year and they won the Grand Slam then took it into November. They just haven't played well enough today."
