“The B**lock” – Joe Marler’s hilarious nicknames for England teammates

Arguably the funniest man in rugby, Joe Marler has a brilliant section of his autobiography detailing some of his favourite nicknames he has given to teammates down the years.

To find out the full story behind each of the brilliant nicknames you can buy Marler’s new book here. 

One funny example from the book is the name ‘Colar Bear’ for his good friend Dan Cole due to his ‘cuddly nature’.
