Alun Wyn Jones reacts to Joe Marler incident and he’s not laughing

England prop Joe Marler was involved in perhaps the most bizarre moment of this year’s Six Nations tournament after he was spotted grabbing the penis of Wales captain Alun Wyn Jones.

The incident, which wasn’t spotted by referee Ben O’Keefe, occurred during a fractious and frenetic opening at Twickenham.

Gareth Thomas made light of the situation on ITV and said: ‘It would have never have happened in my day and I am really upset about that because if it had I would never have retired!’ 

It’s since gone viral with most fans laughing at the incident, but one person who wasn’t laughing was Jones.

Speaking about the incident, the Wales captain said: “If I react I get a red card.

“Yeah. It’s interesting. What would you do?” Jones said after the match.

“I’ve got 138 Tests for my country. If I react, I get a red card. It’s tough, isn’t it?

“Hopefully World Rugby have a look at it. Joe’s a good bloke, lots of things happen on a rugby field.

“It’s difficult as a captain these days because you can’t speak to a ref about anything, it feels.

“I look at the touch judge, obviously he didn’t see what happened and that’s fine.

“There’s a lot of footage that has been shown, it seems like a lot of supporters saw what happened.

“It’s very frustrating that we talk a lot about TMOs and footage reviews, yet there doesn’t seem to be a lot of it happening.”

Speaking about the incident, the Wales captain said: “If I react I get a red card.

“Hopefully World Rugby have a look at it, Joe is a good bloke. . . but there is all the footage that has been shown and a lot of supporters have seen what has happened. It’s not really on.”

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.
