Joe Marler has opened the door for a comeback in England – but only if they suffer from a major World Cup injury crisis.

The 28-year-old retired from Test Rugby last year and returns to Twickenham next Sunday in a Barbarians sweater.

Marler & # 39; s impressive club form, in combination with an injury to fellow prop Mako Vunipola, has evoked calls for a return to the English fold.

But Marler claimed that he would only fly to Japan for his country if two were excluded from Vunipola, Ellis Genge or Ben Moon.

He told the Gain Line: & # 39; If there was an injury crisis and two of the three props lay down, I made myself available to help them if needed. But they don't have an injury crisis and Mako will be fine, so in the current circumstances I am retired. & # 39;

When he talked about his call for BaaBaas to face England, he added: "It will be a little weird in the other team, but I am sure it will be fun, especially as a couple Quins boys play. I also take my costume very seriously, so I have a number of film-quality costumes ready for a night out. & # 39;

The BaaBaas will have a Victorian theme from 1890 for their infamous midweek theme party.

Pat Lam based the theme on the year that the invitation team was established.

Last year the team had a theme from the 70s that saw Chris Ashton himself as a hippie and Finn Russell as Austin Powers.
