Chris Robshaw (born 1986) is an English rugby union Flanker and captain
of Harlequins and the current captain of the England national rugby
union team. Robshaw's position of choice is in the back-row,
specifically flanker. I assume that means you get kicked in the face a
lot cause, jeez look at what happened to him in the pic at left!
As an artist I depend on my eyes and photos like this wig me out!
Robshaw started playing rugby for Warlingham RFC at the age of seven and attended Cumnor House School. He then moved to Millfield Preparatory School and then Millfield where he was first team captain. Robshaw made his Premiership debut in the London double header at the start of the 2007–08 season. He went on to be included in the England Saxons squad who won the Churchill Cup in the summer of 2008. Robshaw is the current first team and club captain of the London based Harlequins club and is a two time Aviva Premiership Player of the Year winner, an award he first won following the 2008/9 season and then again following Quins' title winning campaign in 2011/12
Robshaw is an all action Flanker capable of playing both the Open and Blindside Flanker positions with equal effect. He is renowned for his workrate (both offensive and defensive), ruthless and relentless tackling as well as his ground work and fetching ability. In attack, he has been known to play first receiver, often acting as a pivot for forwards running off him as a part of Harlequins' offload-based brand of rugby. Comparisons have been drawn between Robshaw's playing style and that of Richard Hill as well as his mentor at Harlequins Andre Vos.
