Cape Town - England and Harlequins loosehead prop Joe Marler has given the possibly the strangest interview EVER ahead of the visit of rivals Bath to The Stoop.

Marler, 29, has a wicked sense of humour - and demonstrated as much when asked to preview Saturday's all-English Pool C Champions Cup clash.

Marler, who was part of England's squad at the recent Rugby World Cup squad in Japan, not only talked about getting "back on the horse", he talked LIKE a horse - and Irish one at that!

There's no doubting Marler's, um, 'unbridled' enthusiasm for storytelling, but ahead of the match he'll need to, er, 'rein' it in if Quins are to bounce back from their 53-21 drubbing at the hands of French Top 14 side Clermont Auvergne in last weekend's first round of fixtures.

Marler, who sat out the Round 1 defeat, offers 68 England Test caps worth of experience and Harlequins will no doubt be happy to have him back in the saddle...
