Cardiff bolster back row stocks

Date published: September 19 2017

Cardiff Blues have signed Bristol openside flanker Olly Robinson on a short-term loan deal to provide cover in the loose forward department.

With Sam Warburton, Ellis Jenkins and James Botham all currently side-lined, Robinson has been brought in to provide cover on the flank.

The 26-year-old has notched up 55 appearances for the Championship outfit but opportunities have been limited so far this season.

Robinson, the son of former England and Scotland head coach Andy, has already linked up with the Blues and is available for selection.
