Robinson to make Cardiff Blues switch for 2018/19 season

Olly Robinson has agreed terms to switch to Cardiff Blues for the 2018/19 campaign. 

The back rower - who joined the PRO14 outfit on loan in September - will depart Bristol following four seasons with the club.

“Olly has been a positive ambassador throughout his time with Bristol Rugby - we’re pleased for him that he has secured a long-term contract with Cardiff from next season,” said head coach Pat Lam.

“It’s important for guys to be playing regularly and Olly has that opportunity at the Blues, a place where he has done well during his loan spell.”

He added: “I’m very proud to have played for and captained Bristol – the city I was born in – in the top flight.

“I’m excited about the challenge that awaits at Cardiff next season. It’s a club and competition that I have enjoyed during my loan spell.”
