England international Joe Marler could be in trouble again following return from 'gypsy boy' ban

The prop was involved in another controversial incident in tonight’s European Challenge Cup semi-final match.

THE ‘GYPSY BOY’ controversy is still fresh in the memory and England international Joe Marler has already gone and done something stupid again.

The prop only returned tonight from a two-match suspension for the aforementioned incident and took little time to become embroiled in another controversy.

Playing in Harlequins’ European Challenge Cup semi-final match against Grenoble, he became involved in a scuffle with opponent Arnaud Heguy, before appearing to deliberately aim a kick towards the player’s head.

Marler could consequently be in trouble once again if officials decide to take further action.
