All the Premiership Rugby Stars Set to Retire at the End of the Season

The 2022/23 Gallagher Premiership season has been one like no other. Early on in the campaign Premiership rugby fans saw the financial collapse of Wasps and Worcester Warriors, and throughout the season top stars are being linked with moves overseas.

The tightening salary cap may see some fan favourites depart for now, but the door is always open for a return in the future. However, with each passing season, there are players who hang up their boots for good and pursue a career after rugby.

Here are all the retiring players from the 2022/23 Gallagher Premiership season.
