True to his love for rugby banter, Marler shared a video on Instagram showing a daffodil being flattened by a leaf blower—a cheeky metaphor for Wales being edged out by England in round two.

Playing in the background is “Calon Lân” by the London Welsh Male Voice Choir, with the iconic prop captioning it: “It weren’t pretty but sometimes you just got to find a way.”

Peter O’Mahony and Owen Farrell included on list of ‘dirtiest current’ rugby players

Fans have been ranking who they consider the dirtiest players in the game today.

Some players seem to be chosen due to their unpopularity, while others have been singled out for their thuggish actions on the field.

#5. Owen Farrell (England)

Could anyone else have taken the spotlight first? Farrell embodies the term “our guy” more than most. He’s the player you love to hate unless he’s on your team, in which case you’d defend him passionately.

The former England captain, nicknamed ‘Shoulder Boy’ for his high tackles, hasn’t helped his reputation with his poor tackling technique in the past.

Owen Farrell facts:

The Saracens star went to school with England teammate George Ford

His education began in rugby league – he joined Wigan St Patricks at the age of eight

He became the youngest ever player to appear in English professional rugby, making his debut aged 17 and 11 days. This record was later beaten by schoolmate Ford

It’s well known that Owen is the son of Ireland head coach Andy Farrell. However, it’s less commonly know that his uncle Sean O’Loughlin is also a rugby league legend, winning 34 caps for Great Britain between 1993 and 2009

He was not at first registered as a Farrell, but took mum Colleen’s family name of O’Loughlin. The couple married in 1995, changing Owen’s surname to Farrell the following year.
