A loss for England imo,as all though Marler has done very well so far.The Cole -Corbisiero partnership has been outstanding and proven .Marlar atm i feel is more of an impact player ,comming on when legs are tired and space opens up ,with his good carrying /loose abilty.But it wont be long before his really ready to be a starter imho.If only he could learn to play both sides of the scrum ,now that would be a great asset

@jestnation - agree fully. PDJ is a very decent club prop, but no more.

Obviously Marler is very dynamic and a good carrier but he's still learning in the scrummage whereas Corbs is rock solid in the tight and his workrate at the breakdown is seriously underrated.
Just don't see PDJ as an international prop and disappointed that Mullan hasn't been given an opportunity.
