England’s Marler banned for kick

Breaking news

England and Harlequins prop Joe Marler has been banned for two weeks after being found guilty of kicking a player.

The 25-year-old was seen kicking hooker Arnaud Heguy in the 30-6 European Challenge Cup win over Grenoble.

Marler was playing his first game since being banned for calling Wales’ Samson Lee “Gypsy boy” during the Six Nations.

He will miss Harlequins’ last two Premiership games, but will be free to play in the Challenge Cup final and England’s game with Wales in May.
