Le pilier anglais Joe Marler a confirmé qu’il serait disponible pour le Tournoi des Six Nations 2024, cependant, il a en même temps confirmé la date à laquelle il prendrait sa retraite du rugby.

S’adressant au Times, il a révélé que la fin était proche : « Je suis disponible pour l’Angleterre, mais j’arrêterai le rugby en 2025 ».

Marler, qui a joué un rôle important dans l’équipe de Steve Borthwick lors de la Coupe du Monde de Rugby 2023, compte 88 sélections pour son pays depuis ses débuts en 2012.

Au moment de sa 42e apparition internationale contre la France en mars 2016, il n’avait manqué que quatre matchs depuis ses débuts, en route vers le Grand Chelem.

Il a déclaré forfait pour la tournée d’été qui a suivi en Australie et a fait une pause dans le rugby avant de rejouer pour l’Angleterre sa 50e cape lors de l’éclatante victoire contre l’Écosse en mars 2017.

Trois mois plus tard, Joe faisait partie de l’équipe des British and Irish Lions pour la tournée en Nouvelle-Zélande. Il a annoncé sa retraite internationale en septembre 2018 pour passer plus de temps avec sa famille, mais est revenu sur sa décision pour jouer à la Coupe du monde.

'It’s a mental thing': Joe Schmidt on the Wallabies' flyhalf issues

Ben Donaldson had not played Super Rugby for the past eight weeks. Surely, he was playing Shute Shield for Randwick in that time to keep up the fitness…?? Eight weeks is a long break to be thrust in against a hungry skillful side like Georgia who deserve to be in the “7 Nations”. (Italy, Wales & Scotland v Georgia, can’t wait to see those ones). In the second test against Wales, Donaldson was put on for nine minutes. That was a mistake from the coaching team, who already knew he was starting the following week against Georgia. They should have put him on for 20-25 minutes, with Nick Whyte at halfback, and their combination from the Force would have flowed. Donaldsons first 20 minutes against Georgia was a shocker. However, well done to Joe Schmidt for keeping him out there because Donaldsons game improved as the rust came off, he was hammered a few times and handled it and he came into his groove. He made mistakes which they will all learn from. Ben Donaldson is a naturally talented rugby player who the Wallabies have to stick with at no.10. “Over the black Dot-aldson” is a good nick name for him with his awesome goal kicking style. It looks as though, off the boot, it’s going to hit the post. Then it just curves in beautifully every time, once he is in the groove. Donaldsons play this season for the Force, with Kurtley and co., was amazing to watch. Kurtley making one of the best comebacks in history. Donaldson has to be played consistently with Flash Gordon, Big LEN, McReight, Tupou, Kellaway. Oh, that’s right, there is Bell, Kerevi, Petaia (This list does go on a bit). Donaldson will be slotting these weapons into gaps, and into the clear, before we know it… One more thing which I will just assume is happening, just include JOC in the Wallabies squad. He is a rugby genius. His skills, wisdom and experience would be infectious around the Wallabies relatively inexperienced backline. JOC has mastered the art of all the positions long ago. JOC is so skilled and match fit atm taking THE REDS, at no.10, within a point of beating Wales. He can come off the bench and slot into the backline for the Wallabies at 10, 12, 13 or 15 at any stage of a test match. Ummm yeah, not bad… I am assuming that BIG JOE, Laurie “Gandalf” Fischer, Mike “The scrum Doctor” Cron and the team obviously already know all this. I am just a passionate rugby union supporter, and I am very happy that these guys are in charge of the coaching duties, what a coaching team the Wallabies have been blessed with. (Good luck with selecting the match day 23 when Will Skelton, who was playing amazing rugby for La Rochelle, and the boys return from Europe/Japan, Samu Kerevi…???) Now just imagine having Bernie Larkham, Toutai Kefu, Nathan Grey and John “Nobody” Eales as your coaching apprentices… GO AUSTRALIAN RUGBY… Doing a great job Phil Waugh, Joe Roff, Dan Herbert and the team. An amazing three years ahead. GO THE WALLABIES… GO THE WALLAROOS… GO THE 7’s in Paris…
