The openside joined Wales’ Capital Region on a short-term contract from Bristol in September 2017 and has been a standout player ever since. With 59 appearances for the region, Robinson has followed the likes of Josh Navidi, Josh Turnbull and Dillon Lewis by signing a new contract.

“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,” said Robinson. “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.”

John Mulvihill was pleased to secure the services of Robinson, who he views as one of the most dependable openside’s in the Championship. “It’s great that we have been able to agree a new contract with Olly, who has become a key figure and leader within our environment,” said Mulvihill.

“He has consistently been one of the top performers in the PRO14, is hard-working, diligent and a very intelligent player. The back-row is one of the most attritional positions in the game, so you need to have strength in depth, and we have certainly got that, which is driving standards within our group.”
