Joe Marler surprises everyone in new commercial which has just been released
Joe Marler has appeared in a powerful commercial which has just been released online by Mind, and it is ruffling a few feathers online.
The Harlequins prop did the advert which was designed to show, despite things sometimes seeming ok on the outside, they may not be ok on the inside.
We strongly suggest you watch this advert.
The wild past of Joe Marler…
Began seeing sports psychologist and former England cricketer Jeremy Snape in May, 2016 to address a ‘lack of professional control’, after receiving a two week ban that season for kicking Grenoble hooker Arnaud Heguy in a European Champions Cup tie.
- Was selected for the British and Irish Lions tour in 2017. Did not feature in any of the three tests on that tour.
- Had previously decided that England’s 25-10 win over South Africa in Cape Town on 23 June, 2018 would be his final test match, and when Eddie Jones tried to replace him after 70 minutes, he told him to ‘get f*****.’
- Initially announced his retirement from international rugby on 26 September, 2018, in order to spend more time with his family before reversing that decision to make himself available for RWC 2019 in July, 2019.
- Competed for the Barbarians against England in June, 2019, with England winning 51-43. Described the week training with the Barbarians as the best week of his professional career, which made him want to return to competing for England
- Has been vocal in criticising proposals to reduce the length of the Six Nations to six weeks by removing one of the rest weeks.
- Revealed in an interview in March, 2019 that he has suffered from anxiety over playing international sport due to the pressure and intensity, and at times his wife Daisy had to talk him into reporting for England duty.
- Early in his career, was known for his colourful and creative hairstyles, once sporting a multi-coloured Mohican. Graham Rowntree – who spent eight years as England forwards and scrum coach – made it known that he did not like them because they would attract the attention of referees and Marler was asked to tone down his haircuts.
- Skipped school to watch the RWC 2003 England victory parade as a teenager. Attempted to climb a lamp-post in order to see the players.
- Represented England at U18 and U20 level as well as England Saxons.
