“Wrestled in our underpants” – 5 people who MUST avoid Joe Marler’s autobiography

4. Jonny May

This isn’t necessarily a negative story about the speedster, but having the fact you take part in WWE like wrestling in your underpants published to the masses probably isn’t ideal.

Marler tells a wonderful story of how their epic one-on-one match from behind closed doors was discovered by 2003 World Cup winner and then England coach Mike Catt in 2013.

This resulted in the pair having to wrestle in front of their teammates with May coming out on top after Marler was forced to start on his knees due to his weight advantage.

Marler went onto say: “It was always Jonny who usually tapped out. He was incredibly fit and strong and his wrestling skills were awesome, but being the much chunkier bloke I beat im every time.”

Later on, Marler tells the story of May scoring a try for England U20 with his ass off in incredible detail, saying at one point: “I mean, it wasn’t just a bit of bum crack or half a cheek poking out. This was full moon.”
