Chris Robshaw re-signs with San Diego Legion
Robshaw’s first season with the team was curtailed by injury, as the flanker dislocated his shoulder twice within the span of his first three games.
Robshaw made the move to San Diego after a remarkable 16-years with Harlequins. Capped 66 times by England, Robshaw was hoping made an impact in the fledgling league but it looks like his season could be over.
The 6’2, 110kg loose-forward made his Quins’ first-team debut in 2005 having developed through the Harlequins Academy and went on to make over 250 appearances for the West London club. He is a two-time Premiership Player of the Year winner and scored in Harlequins’ famous Premiership Final victory over Leicester Tigers in 2012.
