British and Irish Lions prop Kyle Sinckler rounded out his tour of New Zealand by being arrested while out in the town in Auckland on Saturday night.

"A male was placed under arrest but was not charged after further inquiries established that the incident did not warrant prosecution", a spokeswoman said.

New Zealand media reports said the incident involving Sinckler happened around 3am on Sunday in central Auckland and the 24-year-old rugby forward was escorted by police officers to the Lions' hotel.

Sinckler has now come out and said sorry for his behaviour, noting: 'I apologise for putting myself and the Lions in this position. "I also apologise to the police and anyone else affected".

Lions tour manager John Spencer also released a statement about the incident, confirming that Sinckler has been "reminded of his responsibilities as a Lion".

"Kyle has apologised for any inconvenience caused and we are satisfied that he regrets this incident and that this is the end of the matter".

"I have. reminded him of his responsibilities as a Lion, which extend to his off the field behaviour".

He was then taken to his accommodation. "Auckland police has no further comment on this incident".

He was involved in a post-match scuffle after the second test in Wellington, trading insults with at least two All Blacks - believed to be halfback TJ Perenara and midfielder Ngani Laumape - after he allegedly refused to walk through a guard of honour that the home side had formed in the tunnel shortly after its 24-21 loss.

Earlier on Saturday night, the Lions had drawn with the All Blacks at Eden Park against all odds to tie up a six-week, three-Test series.
