England and Lions prop Joe Marler has revealed he made his new roommate fill out a questionnaire in order to get to know him better.
The loose-head is rooming with Wales number 8 Taulupe Faletau at the Lions’ training camp at Carton House in Ireland and wanted the oppertunity to get to know him better.
“Last week I was rooming with Jared Payne, he was a great roomie, relatively quiet and kept himself to himself,” said Marler.
“but I thought I really missed out on an opportunity to get to know him a bit more.
“So this week I came up with a questionnaire.
He added: “These are some of the questions I asked: Full name? Nickname? Star sign? Snorer? Early dog or night owl?
“Then it was questions like do you have kids? Pets? Probably best if I don’t tell you what the last couple of questions were though.
“I found out that Taulupe has a partner and has got an eight-month-old kid. It’s just about breaking the ice and getting to know each other.
“If you are living on top of each other you have got to be comfortable, you just need to go with it.”
