Joe Marler

England's Marler banned for 10 weeks after Jones incident

England were 33-30 winners at Twickenham on Saturday, but there were a number of flashpoints throughout the match, with the hosts reduced to 13 men by the final whistle after Ellis Genge went to the sin bin and Manu Tuilagi was sent off.

One incident missed by the officials concerned Jones and prop forward Marler, who appeared to grab at the Wales captain's crotch, though there was no action from the officials. 

Date set for Marler and Tuilagi disciplinary hearings

Both players could face lengthy bans following separate incidents during England’s 33-30 defeat of Wales on Saturday.

As expected, Marler has been cited for the bizarre incident which saw him grab the genitals of Wales’ Alun Wyn Jones during the first half at Twickenham.

Speaking after the game, the Wales captain had called for World Rugby to act on the matter.

“If I react, I get a red card. It’s tough, isn’t it?” he said.
