“Joe was brilliant with me” – This story from Adam Jones proves Marler is one of the good ones

Adam Jones has revealed why everyone should appreciate Joe Marler.

The Wales and Harlequins prop was in the midst of pre-season in San Francisco when news broke of his mother’s sudden death in August.

June Jones, 65, suffered fatal injuries as a result of a tragic accident and the 35-year-old recalls the moment he the news was broken to him by his wife in 2016.

“I was enjoying my pre-season, I got through the initial couple of weeks,” revealed Jones.

“The morning I found out — and I know he hasn’t got the best reputation in Wales — I was sharing with Joe Marler and if he hadn’t been there, I would have been in a heck of a mess. I would have really struggled,

“He was up with me at 4am sorting stuff out, getting me whatever I needed.

“He took me to get breakfast. Joe was brilliant with me that morning.”

June followed her son’s career around the world and was known for being a passionate, knowledgeable rugby fan, as well as being immensely proud of her Adam’s achievements.

Adam Jones all-time dream team.
