Joe Marler just did something amazing that might change your opinion of him

England star Joe Marler may not be the most liked man in Wales following the infamous Samson Lee incident but his latest goodwill gesture may turn a few heads.

Marler was headline news after the long-running Samson Lee ‘gypsy boy’ furore during this year’s Six Nations – a comment which eventually earned him a two-match suspension and a £20,000 fine.

The prop was in hot water again recently after earning himself a separate two-week ban for allegedly kicking Grenoble hooker Arnaud Heguy while representing Harlequins in April.

But one Welshman has heaped praise on the England star following a kind gesture.



Twitter user Jordan Edwards has been working tirelessly and with little success or reward to collect sporting memorabilia for a charity auction.

Having approached current Welsh international players and a select few other rugby legends he remained left empty handed.

But surprisingly Marler came up trumps, not only sending him some signed shirt – but a test worn one. The jersey was worn on his 13th appearance for England in a 20-13 win against Australia on November 2, 2013.
