English Rugby prop Joe Marler came to the fore during the recent World Cup in Japan but his star is now shining even brighter.

The 29-year-old plays for Harlequins in the Gallagher Premiership and after helping England to the World Cup final, the star is set to return to the field.

It comes after he made even more of a name for himself as he stepped over the line during England's infamous haka challenge.

It led his teammates to want to drop the nation's $AU3750 fine for going over the halfway mark into Marler's lap.

On top of his role in one of the most talked about moments in the World Cup, Marler was noticeable with his shock of blonde hair with a dark beard.

But Marler has gained plenty more fans, dropping an incredible interview with Harlequins media that will easily go down as one of the all-time great answers.

After a 53-21 loss to Clermont Auvergne in the European Rugby Champions Cup last week before Marler's return, he spoke about how hard it was on the team.

"I wasn't hurting as much as the lads who were out there but I definitely felt it and I know how hard the boys have taken that," Marler said. "They will be disappointed with the account that we put out but we have got another week to get back on the horse and take that horse to the water and you can ask that horse, you can say: 'Hey, horsey, do you want to have a drink or do you want to swim?'

"It's up to that horse to then realise what he wants to do in his life. That horse, at the moment, wants to go out on Saturday he wants to clippity-clop all the way to The Stoop and he wants to say 'hello' to those fans.

"And he goes: 'I'm sorry about the result last week, but I'm going to give a better performance here at home against Bath' — he's a slightly Irish horse. So we're looking forward, like I say, to getting back on that horse."

Asked after his answer, whether he was looking forward to "getting back on the horse", Marler had the perfect response for that as well.

"I don't like horses. I can't ride."
