Joe Marler Fined And Banned For ‘Gypsy Boy’ Slur

England prop Joe Marler has been fined and banned for two games for calling Wales forward Samson Lee “gypsy boy” but cleared to play in the summer tour of Australia.

Harlequins prop Joe Marler has been banned for two games as sanction for his slur against Wales forward Samson Lee during last month’s RBS 6 Nations Championship victory at Twickenham.

Marler was also fined £20,000 – to be paid to a suitable equality charity – after the misconduct charge brought against him by World Rugby was upheld by a hearing in London.
