England legend Lewis Moody gives his blunt opinion on Joe Marler after the prop was cited for grabbing Alun Wyn Jones genitals.
The clip immediately went viral on social media. Some found it hilarious, including Marler’s former England teammate James Haskell who labelled the prop “a genius” for his hijinks.
Others were shocked by what they considered assault on the field.
Former England captain Moody has called for calm heads after Marler was cited.
This was not an aggressive act to cause harm or an assault. It was a cheeky moment between adversaries who I dare say know each other well. I cannot count the number of nut shots I recieved from opponents when walking through a tunnel at the end of a game. #calmheadsplease pic.twitter.com/sgLv0wpzhH— Lewis Moody (@LewisMoody7) March 10, 2020

So when we started discussing it in the RUCK office it quickly became a tough thing to do.
