On 18 January 2016, Harlequins announced that Marler had signed a new contract to stay at the club. Marler commented on Twitter: "I'm a Quin. I love everything about the club, good and bad. I love every time I get to pull the famous quarters on."[8]

He was called into the England squad for the 2010 end of year tests as injury cover for David Wilson and was then kept on alongside him in the squad, making his test debut as loosehead prop against South Africa in the summer of 2012.[4]

Marler was selected for the 2013 series against Argentina and since became a regular feature in the squad.[9]
