Joe Marler isn't done with test rugby just yet

England and Harlequins loosehead prop Joe Marler has indicated that he is not done with test rugby just yet after coming out of retirement to feature for England during the Rugby World Cup in Japan.


Marler called time on his test career in September 2018 after deciding he did not want to spend long periods away from his family but returned to the test stages to form part of the squad that reached the final.

The Harlequins prop started on the bench in the final with England head coach Eddie Jones admitting that Marler should have started that game to help nullify South Africa's scrum.

Marler has since returned to the Harlequins and is set to feature for the side for the first time since the Rugby World Cup and at a press conference, the 29 said that he will continue playing for the national side if selected.



He also commented on Eddie Jones comments in his new book

 "He's got a book to sell so it's always good to have some headlines. Hindsight is a wonderful thing. On the day South Africa, whoever played, they were pretty unstoppable."

'As it stands, if I'm picked, I'm picked,' said Marler. 'I'll turn up and enjoy myself again.

 

 

'I came in and gave it my all. I'm gutted we fell short in the final but what we did as a group and the memories we created there, I had a brilliant time.'
