Joe Marler denied to be racist despite calling Wales Wales counterpart Samson Lee a “Gypsy kale” during last month’s Nation match at Twickenham.

Marler, who faces a World Rugby disciplinary hearing on Tuesday for making the remark in England’s 25-21 win, said in a statement on Monday he would accept any punishment handed down.

“I’m not a racist. What I said to Samson was out of order and wrong and I am sorry it was said,” Marler.

Rugby’s governing body said Marler’s remark “amounts to misconduct.

Additionally, Welsh Rugby Union said it was disappointed with a Six Nations decision not to punish Marler who could have been handed a four-week suspension.
