Marler revealed on an episode of  ‘A League of Their Own’,: “I did three days, the Saturday night (After the Premiership final) we went back to the [Harlequins] stadium [with] loads of fans, friends and family, then the team carried on a bit.

“I don’t live anywhere near where we play, I was kind of like s*** I don’t really fancy paying for an Uber to go 120 miles away.

“So I thought the next best thing would be to go back to the stadium, break in, jump the fence and sleep in one of the boxes.”

Marler then went on to say: “Luckily I found some keys somewhere, I won’t go into too many details but one of them said box fourteen.

“So I said ‘brilliant, nailed it’ went up to this box and fell asleep.

“I woke up about half-seven, all the lights went on and this woman dressed in a nurse outfit comes in.
