Ben Youngs to end record-breaking England career after Rugby World Cup

Ben Youngs retires as England’s most-capped male player

The half back surpassed Jason Leonard’s tally of 114 caps last February having become only the second Englishman to win a century of Test caps.

Youngs was picked by four different England coaches (Martin Johnson, Stuart Lancaster, Eddie Jones and Borthwick) and toured with the British & Irish Lions in 2013 alongside brother Tom.

The 34-year-old is contracted with club Leicester Tigers until the end of the season.

His retirement follows that of flanker Courtney Lawes, who featured alongside Youngs at Under-18 and Under-20 level.
