Rugby | Marler apologises to Lee over 'gypsy' jibe

London – England prop Joe Marler has apologised to his Wales counterpart Samson Lee for verbally abusing him during Saturday’s Six Nations clash, the Rugby Football Union (RFU) said on Sunday.

Marler was picked up by refere Craig Joubert’s microphone apparently calling Lee “gypsy boy” during the first half of England’s 25-21 win at Twickenham and tournament organisers have opened an investigation.

The remark prompted a confrontation between the players and the RFU said that Marler has expressed regret over what he said.

“Joe spoke to Samson at half-time to apologise and he was reminded by (head coach) Eddie Jones of his responsibilities as an England player after the game,” the RFU said in a statement.
