England captain Owen Farrell, a prominent rugby star of our time, has no intentions of retiring from the game anytime soon.
His remarkable skills in goal-kicking and game management have consistently impressed the rugby community.
Considered by many as the greatest player in Saracens’ history, the 31-year-old has achieved tremendous success as the club’s starting fly-half. He has secured an impressive six Premiership titles and three Champions Cup victories.
Farrell’s achievements extend to the international stage as well. He is a decorated player, having clinched three Six Nations titles and leading England to the final of the 2019 Rugby World Cup.
Reports from RUCK indicate that the club’s hierarchy views Farrell as a future head coach. They are diligently preparing him to succeed Mark McCall within the next five years.
Teammate Jamie George revealed that during Farrell’s absence from club and England duty due to two serious ankle injuries, he transformed into their de facto head coach. His exceptional coaching abilities were on full display as he guided and inspired the team.
George emphasized Farrell’s immense value both on and off the field. He said: “He is that good. He offers so much on and off the field. He is so, so important to this team.
“With his voice, with his actions, in the week the way he prepares, he shows people how it is done. I can’t speak highly enough of him.”
On the other hand, there are players like Stuart Hogg from Scotland and Johnny Sexton from Ireland who are unlikely to continue their rugby careers beyond the 2023 Rugby World Cup.
After confirming his retirement, Hogg said in a statement: “A new career beckons and I will attack in the same manner as I play the game.”
The Scotland legend has revealed he isn’t too keen on coaching, but will remain in the game as a pundit after making his debut on BBC during the 2023 Six Nations.
