IN THE SPOTLIGHT: Joe Marler's recent reckless outburst against Sale Sharks could see the England forward miss a chunk of the Six Nations campaign.

The Harlequins prop was red carded by referee Matthew Carley after he smashed his shoulder in the face off Sale Sharks flank TJ Ioane in the 58th minute.

The 27-year-old's reckless challenge will see him appear before a disciplinary hearing which could jeopardize his availability for England's opening match against Italy on February 4 in Rome.

The prop already missed England's November Test Series after serving a three-week ban for using an elbow to strike Will Rowlands in a Premiership game against Wasps last October.

Harlequins ended up losing the game 29-30 due to a late penalty kick by South African Francois de Klerk.
