Big retirement news today with Rocky Clark deciding to hang up her test boots. To become the world’s most capped women’s player with 137 international appearance means her legendary status rather speaks for itself. Not sure we’ll see another like her.

There were often tears at the national anthem from one of the biggest hearts @englandrugby has ever had.— Sara Orchard (@Sara_Orchard) July 31, 2018

Legends aren’t made by achievements alone...but by the way they hold themselves, inspire & encourage everyone around them, & put their body on the line for their team, & their country, over & over again! @RockyClark_1 YOU ARE A TRUE LEGEND ❤️ #137 #myhero pic.twitter.com/wOYGSW0INU— Danielle (Nolli) Waterman (@nolli15) July 31, 2018
@RockyClark_1 an outstanding servant to the sport of rugby. A player who lifts those around her, who inspires those who follow. A huge heart. One in a million.— Catherine Spencer (@CathSpence8) July 31, 2018
Words cannot explain how much of an inspiration this gal has been for me over the last few years. I feel privileged to have played alongside her at club and country, and to have her as one of my bestest buddies. Love you Rockstar #137 #legend https://t.co/YZ0LXP1w2b— Justine Lucas (@Justo3590) July 31, 2018

Some people are lucky enough to live their dreams. Great people get to inspire the dreams of others.— Karl Cross (@topoftheprops) July 31, 2018
Sad as it feels today the legacy she leaves behind is something to be proud of. Been an honour to watch and learn from. #Rocky137 #rugby #wrugby pic.twitter.com/fdYqgabgsX
