Here’s what England and Harlequins prop Joe Marler said after asked who has the world’s best scrummager right now.
“France are very, very good at the minute. William Servat (France scrum coach) and the things that he is doing with the French front rows, I like a lot of what he is about,” said MarlerEmbed from Getty Images
“I am trying to tap into Phil Keith-Roche (England’s scrum coach in 2003) at the minute and get the old dog some coffee and get some chat going around but we are both very, very fond of the French at the minute.
“Who else is good? Ireland. Tadgh (Furlong) is very good. (Andrew) Porter was going really well until he got his injury, which is a shame.
“Yeah, some good ones out there. I like front rows, I like that one question.”
