Joe Marler makes bizarre bet with Wallabies legend ahead of second test

The England prop offered the Wallabies legend Drew Mitchell a wager as their respective countries prepared for their second test of their three match series this weekend.

This sort of prop didn’t go well for the prop last time with Marler having to sing ‘Bread Of Heaven’ following a defeat of Wales.

But he’s back, and more confident than ever heading into the second test against Australia in Brisbane.

Marler wrote on Twitter: “Loser walks down street, opposition jersey on top, budgies on bottom, singing opposition national anthem….. full blast, no half hearted shit?”

To which Mitchell responded gladfully: “If @wallabies lose next week, I’ll wear an England jersey on top, @BudgySmuggler on the bottoms and belting out ‘God save our Queen’ up Caxton street. May the worst man embarrass themselves haha”

How to watch Australia vs England second test on UK TV

Joe Marler’s dream team of players he’s coached could compete with any team from any generation of rugby.


1. Jason Leonard (England)
2. Rory Best (Ireland)
3. Carl Hayman (New Zealand)

Marler on Leonard: “My Idol – I still pinch myself when I’m in his company. A juggernaut on the pitch and a legendary drinker and socialiser off it.”


4. Alun Wyn Jones (Wales)
5. Paul O’Connell (Ireland)
