“Lined up” – Owen Farrell reveals his career plans for when he retires from playing rugby

England’s rugby captain Owen Farrell, a titan of the sport, has dismissed any notion of hanging up his boots in the near future.

Renowned for his prowess in goal-kicking and astute game management, the 31-year-old has inked a two-year deal to bolster Racing 92’s ranks come summer.

Hailed as a legend in Saracens’ annals, Farrell’s legacy is etched in silverware, boasting an impressive tally of six Premiership titles and three Champions Cup triumphs as the club’s stalwart fly-half.

His influence transcends club boundaries, resonating on the international stage where he’s led England to three Six Nations crowns and steered them to the final of the 2019 Rugby World Cup.

Rumblings from RUCK suggest that despite his imminent departure, the Saracens hierarchy envisions Farrell donning the mantle of head coach in the foreseeable future, grooming him to succeed Mark McCall within the next five years.

Teammate Jamie George attested to Farrell’s multifaceted impact, lauding his seamless transition into a de facto coach during his spells on the sidelines due to severe ankle injuries. 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.


Sources tell RUCK that BT Sport (soon to be TNT Sports) are keen. to recruit the fullback as a key part of their 2023/24 Premiership coverage.


He is the co-owner of steak house Finsbay Flatiron in Glasgow.

The focus for Finsbay Flatiron is steak, specialising in 8oz flat irons (as the name suggests) and steaks from £8 on weekdays and £10 on weekends, as well as sides like mac and cheese and triple cooked chips.


He’s a director of a distillery named Maiden Batch.

Caulker’s is a collaborative effort between five Glasgow men, two of whom happen to be British Lions and Scotland rugby internationals, Hogg and Alastair Kellock. The bottle is signed by all five.

The England and Exeter Chiefs winger is the co-owner of The Swordfish Inn back in his hometown of Cornwall.

He is also a director of MUSTARD Clothing.
