Joe Marler demonstrated some impressive handling skills for a front-row forward in England’s Six Nations victory over Wales at Twickenham.
As players from both sides squared up early on, the England prop could be seen approaching Wales captain Alun Wyn Jones and nonchalantly grabbing the lock’s gentials.
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!’

England would go on to win the match with early scores from Anthony Watson and Elliot Daly, plus a second half try from Manu Tuilagi restoring dominance following Justin Tipuric crossing 40 seconds into the second period.
However, a red card for Tuilagi with six minutes left – shortly after Ellis Genge had been sin-binned – put England’s position at risk and Dan Biggar and Tuilagi dragged the result back to 33-30.
Marler has gained a reputation for bizarre and sometimes humorous behaviour on and off the field, having earlier this season delivered an analogy that involved a horse impression in an interview for his club side Harlequins.
