Wyn Jones left shocked as Marler grabs his privates in England vs Wales melee
Wales captain Alun Wyn Jones was left incredulous when Joe Marler was caught on camera grabbing his penis as the skipper tried to separate players following a scuffle in their Six Nations clash.
Just after the 10-minute mark, Wales rattled over in a bid to open their account but no try was the ruling as George North knocked on.
It prompted a prolonged melee at the whitewash when England captain Owen Farrell shoved North in the chest.
Almost every player on the pitch then became involved, with scrum-half Tomos Williams in the thick of it and Maro Itoje restraining Ross Moriarty as he fronted up to the opposition.
And, as Jones tried to separate players, he was left stunned by smirking Marler's actions, looking to the officials in bewilderment.
England were eventually penalised for Farrell starting the afters, but referee Ben O'Keeffe instructed both skippers to calm their players down.
This isn’t the first time Marler has courted controversy.
Back in 2016, he was banned for two games and fined £20,000 after he called Welsh prop Samson Lee ‘Gypsy boy’ in the Six Nations at Twickenham.
In a previous interview with the Daily Telegraph, the prop said: “I’m not the easiest of blokes at times. I know that.
“Down the years I have been a prat at times – those (Mohican) haircuts, gobbing off, red cards – yeah, guilty.
“It was when, Olly Kohn, who was known as Fisherman’s Friend as he was nice to everyone, told me that I was being a bit of a d— that the penny finally dropped. Olly broke down that barrier.
“I like to think I’ve developed a bit of self-awareness since then. It was cathartic. That’s a big word for me. But it’s the right one. ”
A win over their rivals on Saturday will give England the chance to claim a third title in five years.
Wales, meanwhile, are in danger of finishing a lowly fifth, having lifted the Grand Slam under Warren Gatland last year.
