CLUB Sale Sharks
POSITION Full back/Wing
Debut: 2001 v Italy
Jason Robinson MBE, the England tour captain, last winter returned to the RBS 6 Nations Championship squad after announcing his retirement at international level in September 2005. He has since hung up his boots at club level, scoring a last-minute winning try for Sale Sharks against Bath in April, and will finally retire after being available for the 2007 RWC. He dispelled the theory that it takes a whole career to become a rugby union legend by establishing himself as the highest profile player in the Northern Hemisphere and scoring the try that helped England to triumph 20-17 over Australia in the 2003 RWC final. His vivid sidesteps and swerves have bewitched and bemused would-be tacklers since his Sharks’ debut against Coventry in the autumn of 2000 and captained his club for three seasons.
He enjoyed a fabulous run with Wigan at the 13-a-side game, playing in 302 rugby league matches overall, scoring 184 tries and winning 12 Great Britain and seven England caps. A Lion with five Test appearances against Australia and New Zealand, he captained England six times before this tour. Last April, he completed 500 matches in both codes as a professional player dating back to his rugby league debut against Hull in 1992. He was educated at Cross Flatts Park Middle School and Matthew Murray HS in Leeds.

Jason’s autobiography ’Finding My Feet’ was published in September 2003 and has become a best seller. His scoring exploits in rugby league became legendary but he has also flourished in the 15-a-side game with Test hat tricks against Canada and Italy and four tries against Romania in November 2001. He led Sale Sharks to their first Guinness Premiership title last year with a 45-20 win over Leicester Tigers at Twickenham. Jason says that he has been very fortunate to play with and against some of the best rugby players in both codes. He adds: ”Winning the World Club Championship with Wigan in Brisbane in 1994 was special but the high point so far has to be our World Cup final victory in Australia.”
