Flanker Olly Robinson becomes the latest player to commit his immediate future with Cardiff Blues after signing a new long-term deal.

Robinson started his professional rugby career with Moseley in 2012 before heading to Bristol Bears in 2014 before joining Cardiff Blues ahead of the 2017/18 season. Since then, he has made 59 appearances for the Welsh regional side.

He will follow the likes of Josh Navidi, Josh Turnbull and Dillon Lewis in extending their stay at Cardiff Arms Park. The 28-year-old was named Blues' Players' Player of 2018-19 and went on to win the man of the match award in the victorious final of the European Challenge Cup in 2018.

“I’ve loved my time in Cardiff and have been made to feel really welcome from the very first day I was here, so it was a pretty straightforward decision," he told the official website of the club.

“I am enjoying my rugby and the style of rugby we play. We have some really exciting young lads coming through and others that have become established regional and international players.

“There is still plenty of room for improvement, but I am looking forward to seeing how far we can go and what we can achieve in the next few years.”
