Rugby bad boy Joe Marler reported to referee for kicking opponent in the head
Oh Joe, say it isn’t so.
You may remember that Joe Marler was at the centre of an investigation for calling a Wales player "gypsy boy" during the Six Nations.
The England international was hit with a hefty fine, and banned for two games earlier this month for his outburst at Wales forward Samson Lee.
You would have imagined then after the ban that Marler would be looking to keep his head down, but tonight he is likely to find himself in more hot water after allegedly booting a player in the head.
'Quins are playing Grenoble in the Challenge Cup semi-final, and TV footage appeared to catch the prop making the connection with the head of Grenoble's Arnaud Héguy.
The footage does not make for a pretty picture.

Looks like Joe Marler will have a job explaining his latest hot-headed decision

Not sure Joe Marler will be able to pass off kicking someone in the head as banter. Its about time we kicked him out of the game for good.
