However, RugbyPass have reported today that Rugby United New York from Major League Rugby are looking to snap up the legendary fly-half for the 2021 season.

I’ve gone a bit quiet since the JRU announced they are cancelling all their competitions this season. I know it’s the right decision with what the world is going through at the moment but I would have loved to try help my @kobelcosteelers_official family win another top league, and I’m gutted I can’t do this. I want to thank the club, fans and my team mates for welcoming me and making the last two seasons some of the most enjoyable rugby I have ever played. The clubs future is looking very bright, and I’m glad I got to add my little piece to the @kobelcosteelers_official legacy. #kobelcosteelers #rugby
They are on the hunt for more marquee signings for next season and have already held talks regarding next season with ex-England captain Chris Robshaw after they lost lost Mathieu Bastareaud to Lyon.
Carter played the first of his 112 Tests for the All Blacks in 2003, scored a record 1 598 points during his international career and was the world player of the year in 2005, 2012 and 2015.
Six Nations captains ranked by how much fun they’d be on a night out
What does the Six Nations and British Pubs have in common?
Well, sadly, they’re both shut down due to the coronavirus pandemic and it remains to be seen when either live rugby or enjoying a pint with your mates will be back on the table.
Inspired by an article from Give Me Sport, we rank them from 6-1.

This is why pubs have coffee machines now. Strap yourselves in for some quiet chats around a cappuccino that you just have to imagine real hard is an Irish coffee. Persuade Johnny to the club and he’ll tell the DJ to ‘turn the music down’, before dialling a noise complaint to the police.
