Corry ‘politely’ calls it quits

Former England captain Martin Corry today pulled the plug on his international career.

Corry, 34, who played in the World Cup final only three months ago, “politely” declined an offer from England coach Brian Ashton for a place in the 32-man squad for the Six Nations, according to The Guardian.

Corry, however, will still serve one more year with Leicester.

After 64 England and six Lions’ caps, Corry said he could no longer carry on. “It’s just a shame I’m getting old. Something has to give,” he said.
