Joe Marler breaks social media silence after Alun Wyn Jones incident

England prop Joe Marler is likely to find out on Monday whether he will be cited for an act against good sportsmanship.

This comes after he appeared to grab the genitalia of Wales captain Alun Wyn Jones in Saturday’s Six Nations match at Twickenham.

Citings must be made within 48 hours of the final whistle, and while the precise charge from citing commissioner Peter Ferguson of Ireland would dictate what suspension Marler may face, World Rugby’s low-end entry-point for a ban relating to “grabbing, twisting or squeezing the genitals” is 12 weeks.

Tonight the prop broke his social media silence.

All he said was: “Bollocks. Complete bollocks”

Speaking about the incident, Wales captain Jones said: “If I react I get a red card.

“Hopefully World Rugby have a look at it, Joe is a good bloke. . . but there is all the footage that has been shown and a lot of supporters have seen what has happened. It’s not really on.”

4. Burning twitter critic

In a reply to the appearance of Joe Marler on a BBC 5 Live show, a Tweeter observed that he thought the prop was a “absolute try hard weapon……….him not you obviously”.

Problem was that Marler was tagged in the Tweet and duly decided to reply.

“Very true mate. I try very hard……. to have regular vaginal intercourse with your mum, but she insists on having it in her arsehole every time! Mental.
