In his debut season, Marland made one appearance for Irish, against Sale Sharks, He started at wing and in his debut match he scored a try.

The following season was an improvement, where he appeared for Irish a further 9 times, but his only tries came in the 52-point demolition of Gloucester, when he came on as a replacement to score two tries. In the 2012/2013 season he appeared 23 times for Irish, scoring 7 tries, including a hat-trick against Worcester Warriors.
In January 2014 he signed a two-year contract to join Harlequins for the 2014–15 season.[4] He finished his spell at Irish on a high note, scoring 20 points in his final two games including a hat trick against Gloucester Rugby.[5][6]
