Thursday 21 February 2013
Bristol have announced the signing of Wales international fly-half Nicky Robinson from Wasps.
Robinson, 31, has agreed a three-year deal, starting next season.
The move has been confirmed just three days after Championship club Bristol unveiled former England and Scotland coach Andy Robinson as their new rugby director.
Robinson, who has won 13 caps, joined Wasps from their Aviva Premiership rivals Gloucester in 2011. Prior to that he played for Cardiff Blues.
"I am excited about the project at Bristol Rugby and the future that lies ahead," Robinson told http://www.bristolrugby.co.uk
"Bristol has a famous history and the rugby club is a huge part of the city. I will be proud to represent them and contribute to the team and the goals they have set.
"I am under no illusions about the scale of the task ahead. It doesn't matter if Bristol are in the Championship or Premiership next season, there will be some tough challenges to come.
"I am looking forward to testing myself, developing my game and helping the club push on to the next level."
Wasps rugby director David Young added: "Nick is joining a club at a very exciting time and I am sure he will play a big part in helping them to realise their ambitions.
"Nick is not only a very experienced and good rugby player, but also a good bloke who will work well in any environment."
