England's Marler escapes punishment for remark towards Wales' Samson Lee

Prop had already apologised to his opponent for calling him "gypsy boy"

England's Joe Marler has escaped punishment after controversial comments made towards an opponent during a rugby union Six Nations match.

He questioned the heritage of Wales' Samson Lee during last Saturday's game at Twickenham.

The prop quickly apologised following the incident, and Lee accepted that his words were not "racist in intent".

Marler earlier was spared sanction for striking Rob Evans in the same game.

He will now be available for Saturday's finale with France.
