Revitalised Chris Robshaw cannot wait to tackle Australia again after bouncing back from his personal World Cup nightmare. Robshaw suffered a torrid time in the wake of England’s exit, after which he was stripped of the captaincy by new boss Eddie Jones. Rather than sulking, though, the Harlequins flanker showed admirable fortitude to retain his […]
Chris Robshaw has more reason than any player on the planet to bear a grudge against Warren Gatland’s Wales. The two biggest and most costly disasters of Robshaw’s recently curtailed 42-cap tenure as England captain came against the Welsh.
