Biography

Bolstering their front-row options in January, 2015, the Cornish Pirates signed Marlen initially on a short-term contract from Weston-Super-Mare.

Auckland-born, in his youth Marlen represented New Zealand Secondary Schools, playing in the same side as ‘All Blacks’ Zac Guildford and Sam Whitelock and he was also a member of the Auckland Blues and Western Force Academies.

Much of Marlen’s senior rugby has been played for Nedlands Rugby Club in Australia, and prior to joining Weston-Super-Mare he had also experienced rugby playing for TV Pforzheim in Germany.

Marlen made his debut for the Pirates when used as a replacement when the Cornish Pirates recorded a memorable 45-38 points win against Bristol in February, 2015. By the season’s end his tally of appearances totalled seven, and he had also scored two tries.

What about the last two seasons? Well, Marlen certainly made his mark and by the end of 2016/17 had taken his games tally to 61. He was also presented with ‘The President’s Cup’, for being, in the eyes of the President, the most outstanding contributor on the field during the season.
