Educated at Redruth School and Truro College, Robin is a former Redruth player who signed for Plymouth Albion in 2015. He was a County Championship winner with Cornwall in both 2015 and 2016 and was also the recipient of Trelawny’s ‘Player of the Year’ trophy for 2017. Other honours include playing for England Counties, whilst he has also represented Exeter Chiefs in the Singha Sevens.

Robin suffered a serious knee injury when playing for Plymouth Albion in a pre-season friendly against the Cornish Pirates in 2017. It was a set-back for the gifted young player, however he recovered well and was keen to take his chance of playing Championship rugby.

When Robin signed for the Cornish Pirates, coach Gavin Cattle was delighted to welcome him on board, seeing him as a strong, rangy and physical winger, which in his first season was certainly witnessed. With pace also an extra bonus, in making 26 appearances he scored a total of 16 tries.

Of interest, Robin has a Flemish father – so, is half Cornish and half Belgian.
