Robinson inducted into rugby Hall of Fame

EXTREMELY PROUD: Robinson

FORMER ENGLAND rugby union and rugby league international Jason Robinson was inducted into the Rugby Players’ Association Hall of Fame yesterday (May 23) at an awards evening in London.

The 37-year-old, who scored 28 tries in 51 England rugby union appearances, was a key component to England’s World Cup winning side of 2003.

The ex-Sale Shark, who went on two tours with the British and Irish Lions, scored England’s only try in the 2003 final against Australia.

Robinson also captained England during the 2007 World Cup where the side reached the final before losing to South Africa.

"For me to be thought of in this way is superb and something I am extremely proud of," said Robinson. "Sometimes you don't realise what you have been part of for all these years.

“Rugby union for me, especially after a very successful career in rugby league, has made a good career great, and I am delighted to receive such an award."
