REPORT | Joe Marler linked with shock Harlequins departure

Planet Rugby has reported that England prop Joe Marler ‘has requested a transfer’ away from Harlequins after another dismal performance against London Irish.

With Marler in dominant form, Quins bossed the scrum and loose for most of the game, yet disciplinary errors and mistakes allowed London Irish to come back to draw 27-27, as London Irish replacement and Puma legend Agustin Creevy inspired a fightback for his new club.

This is the latest blow for Quins fans, who are also set to lose Mike Brown to Newcastle Falcons and Chris Ashton to Worcester Warriors.

However, they have been linked with a move for England speedster Anthony Watson, who is out of contract with Bath in the summer.

DID YOU KNOW? He isn’t technically a one-club man. After joining the Quins academy in 2008, the prop spent some time on loan to Esher and Worthing
