Rugby World Cup: England's Joe Marler comes out of international retirement

The 29-year-old Harlequins prop retired from England duty in September 2018 having won 59 caps.

But he has reversed that decision and is included in a 35-man training squad for this year's tournament in Japan.

"I saw Joe during the Barbarians week and he indicated that he had a desire to come back," said England head coach Eddie Jones.

"We have since had a couple of chats and we have given him the opportunity to do that. Now it is up to him to show us what he has got."

I think his experience in and around the squad will be beneficial, given the loss from the squad of Brown, Robshaw, Care etc. Care is the one Im most surprised and least in agreement about, hes still a real game changer and there is no experienced international backup for Ben Youngs without him.
