Is it so, Joe?

According to The Times, Joe Marler has been named in England's elite player squad (no official confirmation as yet) and therefore is in contention for a return to international rugby for this year’s World Cup.

As an England fan I hope it is true.

As a Marler fan, I'm not so sure. 

Having announced his retirement from the international game in September last year and having since opened up about his mental health difficulties, I only hope (and I've said this previously) that both he and Eddie Jones have made the correct call as far as his health and well being is concerned.

Hopefully, assuming he is actually returning to international duty and is picked, his sojourn will have revitalised him mentally. From what I have seen of his club rugby, he remains a force and would be a great addition.
