Good Morning Britain host Piers Morgan went on a rant when discussing Joe Marler grabbing Alun Wyn Jones’ genitals during England’s Six Nations clash with Wales over the weekend.
The TV host said: ‘Let’s just say he got to grips with the Welsh captain, that has caused some controversy…it was a little tickle and all hell broke loose.
‘I thought the whole thing was funny, because I remember Vinnie Jones doing this to Paul Gascoigne. And for 30 years since that picture we’ve all laughed about it and said what fun.’
And Piers wasn’t impressed by Jones post-match press conference, adding ‘He hopes world rugby takes a look at it. Do you, Alyn Wyn Jones? Really? You play high level rugby for 20 years and this has really offended you?’
He continued: ‘The world is now in two halves, you can either look at the Joe Marler thing and have a laugh, as most normal people do, or you can go this way, is grabbing someone’s genitals actually funny in this day and age?

‘Taking your legal argument, he should be arrested for assault, should he? If you find it this serious, he should be arrested and charged and in prison for assault.’
When asked whether he could care if someone grabbed him by his genitals, Piers screeched: ‘Who cares?’
He went on: ‘By all means try, if you want to come up to me in my local pub and tickle me where the sun don’t shine, try your luck, I make no guarantee about my reaction, but by all means, have a go.’

4. Burning twitter critic
In a reply to the appearance of Joe Marler on a BBC 5 Live show, a Tweeter observed that he thought the prop was a “absolute try hard weapon……….him not you obviously”.
Problem was that Marler was tagged in the Tweet and duly decided to reply.
“Very true mate. I try very hard……. to have regular vaginal intercourse with your mum, but she insists on having it in her arsehole every time! Mental.
