Social media reacts to Joe Marler confirming his retirement from international rugby

England prop Joe Marler says he is retiring from international rugby at the age of 28 to spend more time with his family.

“Being with England you have to spend an incredible amount of time away and I could not do that any more,” he said.

“It is an incredible commitment to play rugby for England and I strongly believe that if you are unable to give yourself fully to it then it is time to step away – otherwise it would not be fair on the team, or my family.

“It has been an honour and a privilege to represent my country and of course this has been a very difficult decision to make.”
