Posted: Tuesday 5th January 2021 - 12:00 PM
Captain of Castleford Tigers Women Clarie Garner has announced her retirement from the rugby league.
The 30-year-old took to social media to confirm the news and said: "Rugby it has been an absolute pleasure but it's time to hang the boots up for good.
Thank you to everyone who made my rugby journey as enjoyable as it was. I experienced things I would never have done if it wasn't for rugby."
Garner walks away from the game after a decorated career which saw her lift the League Leaders' Shield for the Tigers in 2019. Furthermore, in 2019 as captain Claire helped lead Castleford to both the Women's Challenge Cup Final and the Women's Super League Grand Final. Before her move to join the Tigresses, Garner was also part of the unbeaten 2017 Bradford Bulls team who won the Grand Final that year.
On the international stage, Garner represented England on three occasions including at the 2017 Rugby League World Cup.
Castleford Tigers would like to thank Claire for all her efforts and we wish her well for the future.
