Mar­ler to make Test come­back

Daily Mirror (Northern Ireland) - - SPORT - BY ALEX SPINK

JOE MAR­LER has been rushed straight back by Eng­land fol­low­ing his ban for strik­ing.

The Har­lequins prop will vie with Sara­cens’ Mako Vu­nipola for loose-head se­lec­tion against Aus­tralia, tak­ing El­lis Genge’s place.

But Vu­nipola’s club­mate Ge­orge Kruis has been ditched al­to­gether.

Kruis started against Ar­gentina but was subbed off in­side the hour. He now finds him­self out of the 25-man squad.

The burly sec­ond row suf­fered the same fate on the Li­ons tour, se­lected for the se­ries opener against New Zealand be­fore be­ing dropped for the next two Tests.
