    Default Marler grope

    Joe Marler caught on camera groping / fondling Alun Wynn Jones .

    What's appropriate if you see that ? YC ? RC ?

    Struggle to see how that’s anything short of a red card, TBH. If it happened in the street, it’s a criminal offence.

    What a surprise - Joe Marler.
    Do you have a match time for the incident?

    Loving Gareth Thomas's response!!
    On a more serious note, given Marler's disciplinary record for off the ball incidents, he should get a stiff sentence ;-)

    Did you ? I though Gareth Thomas response was totally inappropriate. For me that was not a laughing matter

    Thug, £20000 fine for calling Wales's Samson Lee 'Gypsy boy' at Twickenham had zero affect on his behaviour. Just ban him for life. No loss to rugby whatsoever.

    Well yes, of course the incident itself is ugly and is no laughing matter. But I felt that Gareth Thomas was making a joke at his own expense, rather than anyone else's. As the first (only?) International player to come out, and given that even now there is some abuse from various quarters (eg the recent going-to-hell type comments), in my book he deserves a large slice of latitude.
