Joe Marler reveals Eddie Jones warning

England prop Joe Marler says coach Eddie Jones has handed him a stern warning regarding his disciplinary problems.

Marler has been forced to miss four internationals through suspension this season, something which has not gone down well with the England coach.

"I won't go into too much of it, but he wasn't a happy bunny (following the latest ban) and he made it very clear to me - he didn't need to make it publicly," Marler said.

Marler is now set to return against Scotland in two weeks, and England will spend two days this week scrummaging against the Georgia forwards.

"It's a way for Eddie to test us, and a way for us to test ourselves against the best pack in the world when it comes to scrummaging," he said.

"Ultimately, it comes down to [the question of] do we think scrummaging against Georgia is a good way to improve and keep striving to our goal of winning the World Cup and being the best side in the world? Yes.

"It's going to be tough, but it's something to look forward to."
