Although the Lions received some devastating news in the form of Billy Vunipola’s withdrawal from the New Zealand tour over the weekend, Joe Marler certainly seems to be keeping spirits up in the camp itself.
With the Lions getting themselves prepped for a titanic tour of New Zealand this summer, several players have already gathered together as the squad looks to bond before the big journey south.
‘Player Mic’ is a feature that has become increasingly common in the game of rugby with some brilliant moments being captured during Munster’s Pro 12 semi-final clash with Ospreys as CJ Stander was put in the spotlight.
However, while an actual contest doesn’t really allow a player to take advantage of the opportunity a secret mic presents, Joe Marler really embraced the feature over the weekend as he was wired up at a Canterbury Lions event over the weekend.
Check out Marler having a jolly old time on player mic in the official Lions footage below.
