The most capped female player in rugby retires.

by Muzamil Khan

Sarah Hunter, the player with the most test rugby appearances, will call it a career this weekend following one more match for England.

After England’s opening Six Nations match against Scotland in her hometown of Newcastle, captain Sarah Hunter will step down from her position.

The 37-year-old made her 138th international appearance at the women’s Rugby World Cup in New Zealand last year, making her the most capped woman in all blacks live.

She has received 140 England caps, more than any other player, male or female, in the nation.

Since making her England debut in 2007, Hunter has won 10 Six Nations championships, one World Cup title, and led her side to two finals.

“Few athletes have the freedom to decide how and when to end their playing careers. I am extremely fortunate to have the chance to complete on my own terms “According to Hunter’s comment.

“There was no better place to do it than in my hometown, where my rugby career began.

“I feel very fortunate that I am able to finish in a place that has a particular place in my heart in front of my friends, family, and Red Roses’ fans.”

She was a member of the England squad that set a record 30-match winning streak between 2019 and 2022, which was broken by New Zealand’s victory in the World Cup final in November.

After signing a four-year contract that runs through the end of 2027, NZ Rugby has confirmed that Scott Robertson will continue to lead the All Blacks following the 2023 World Cup.

Ian Foster, whose contract with the Crusaders expires at the end of this year, will be replaced by the new coach because he decided not to reapply.

As Robertson was widely regarded as the leading candidate for the job, his hiring as coach should not come as a huge surprise.

Since taking over the Crusaders in 2017, he has won the championship each year. He has also had success as Canterbury and New Zealand U20 coach.

Being named the new All Blacks head coach is an honor, Robertson said. Despite the fact that the position carries a great deal of responsibility,

The earlier-than-expected declaration from NZ Rugby puts a stop to the role’s mounting uncertainty and rumors.

Since All Blacks assistant Joe Schmidt announced he would not apply, Japan coach Jamie Joseph was seen as Robertson’s biggest competition for the job. Nevertheless, with competition from other countries, NZ Rugby has rushed to secure their preferred candidate before receiving any overseas offers.

I’d want to congratulate Scott on his appointment, said Mark Robinson, the head of NZ Rugby.

“His track record as a successful coach speaks for itself, but what stood out during the interview process was his creative approach to the game, his love for his players, and his ambition to further the heritage of the All Blacks.
