Robinson, 19, impressed Welsh selectors and was called up to the Wales 35 man senior squad for the training camp in Poland prior to the 2012 Six Nations Championship. He made a try-scoring debut for his country in June, in the test against the Barbarians.
In 2010/11 he won the Cardiff Blues Academy Player of the Year Award having had an outstanding season and became the youngest ever player to represent the Cardiff Blues, when, aged 17 years and nine months, he lined up against the Ospreys in the LV= Cup.
Speaking of the signing Robinson said,
“I’m really pleased to get to stick around for a few years.”
“It was an easy decision to make and I took the offer with both hands.”
“This is the best rugby environment for me to be in and I’ve got a good group of friends here also, so I’m excited to be here.”
“It does feel like a fresh start with Phil coming in and all the boys who are here feel it’s a good environment to be in.”
“It was a bit of whirlwind last season for me but things have sunk in now but now it’s a new season and I’m just putting my head down and working hard.”
“My ambition is to establish myself in the Blues team but competition is going to be tough with the quality back three players we have in the squad at the moment.”
