World Cup winner Jason Robinson has announced his retirement from rugby for the second and, he insists, final time.

Robinson hung up his boots after the 2007 World Cup but returned to action with fourth-tier club Fylde last year, helping the Lancashire side win promotion to National League One.

"After 541 games of competitive rugby, I think the time is right to stop," Robinson, 36, told BBC Lancashire.

Robinson won 51 caps for England, including seven as captain, and played in five Tests for the British and Irish Lions.
