ngland’s prop, Joe Marler, is reportedly planning to retire at the conclusion of the current Gallagher Premiership season, as per a report by RugbyPass.
England secured a Rugby World Cup bronze medal last night at the Stade de France, triumphing over Argentina for the second time in this tournament with a 26-23 victory in a rain-soaked Paris. Interestingly, Marler, a prominent figure in rugby union, was absent from the Harlequins’ front row during this game.
Reacting to then news, one fan said: “Rugby needs more characters like Joe,”
Another said: “Such a guy. Podcast, father, wit, player, general decent guy. He’ll be missed,”
A third commented: “
Renowned for his colorful personality, Marler has carved out a niche in the world of media, with a successful podcast and regular appearances on Talksport and various other UK media outlets.
In 2017, Marler, alongside his fellow Quin Kyle Sinckler, earned a spot in the British and Irish Lions’ squad for their tour of New Zealand.
During the autumn of 2019, Marler came out of international retirement, earning a place in Eddie Jones’ England squad, which reached the World Cup Final in Japan.
Marler reached a milestone when he achieved his 200th cap for Harlequins in January 2020, and the following season, he was recognized as the Man of the Match in the Premiership Final.
