“In Rugby World Cup year we have to keep all our options open in terms of talent and the talent which has been playing in England.”

And despite waiting for two years to pull on a red shirt, Robinson maintains his passion for Wales still burns as deep as it has ever done.
"I haven't retired, I don't think, by playing in England… or that it diminishes my chances of playing, personally,” he said.
"Other people might think that, but I still hope and dream that I can put that red jersey back on.
"I still hope that I can play for Wales again. Whether that's in the World Cup or not I don't know.”
