- Saracens fly-half heading to France’s Top 14 in the summer
- Move could spell the end of his record-breaking England career
Owen Farrell will be unavailable to England for the foreseeable future after confirming a two-year deal to play French club rugby with Racing 92. Farrell, who will be 36 when the next World Cup kicks off, will relocate to Paris this summer, making him ineligible to represent England again until mid-2026.
While Farrell could still theoretically be picked for the British & Irish Lions tour to Australia next year, coached by his father Andy, the transfer definitely removes him from the England equation for the next two seasons.
