Joe Marler set to learn citing fate after semi-final incident

  • Joe Marler’s return to the rugby field after his ‘gypsy boy’ ban failed to pass off without incident
  • The prop aimed an apparent kick at Grenoble’s Arnaud Héguy’s head
  • He should find out if he is to be cited later today
Harlequins prop Joe Marler should find out later on Monday if he is to be cited after appearing to kick out at an opponent’s head during the Challenge Cup semi-final win over Grenoble last Friday.

If found guilty Marler, who has just returned from a two-game ban after his inappropriate comments towards Wales’ Samson Lee, could miss England’s tour to Australia this summer.

A low entry ban is four weeks which would rule him out of the European Challenge Cup final next month against Montpellier in Lyon.

The entry point for a mid-range offence is eight weeks which would mean he would miss England’s summer tour.
