England World Cup winner Vicky Fleetwood has confirmed that she will retire at the end of this season.

The loose forward made her Roses debut in 2011 in their 15-11 defeat to the USA and has earned 82 caps for England, winning five Six Nations titles.

She was part of the 2014 World Cup-winning squad and played six times during the tournament, including the final as England beat Canada 21-9.

Fleetwood also played in the 2017 tournament then swapped to join England Sevens, where she won bronze in the 2018 Commonwealth Games before returning to 15-a-side rugby.

Since joining Saracens in 2014 she is also a two-time Premier 15s title winner with the club.

โ€œMy rugby career has been an incredible journey and has given me memories that will last forever,โ€ Fleetwood told the England Rugby website.

โ€œBeing part of the Red Roses is something special and Iโ€™m proud that I got to wear the white shirt on so many occasions.

โ€œRugby has given me so much to be thankful for, and Iโ€™ve met some amazing people along the way.

โ€œAlthough itโ€™s time to step away from playing, I will continue to stay in the game through my coaching โ€“ something I am very passionate about.โ€
