CHRIS ROBSHAW

Chris Robshaw is an English rugby union player for the Harlequins and ex-captain of the England Rugby team, and is the second-most capped captain of the professional era.

After a youth career at Warlingham FC, Chris made his first appearance for the Harlequins in the 2007/08 season. After a stellar first season as flanker he was called up to Churchill Cup-winning England Saxons squad in 2008. In 2009 Robshaw was called up to full England squad, before being named captain for the first two games of the 2012 Six Nations tournament.

Chris has earned many personal accolades throughout his career, including the 2008/09 and 2011/12 Aviva Premiership Player of the Year, making him the only player in history to be awarded this twice. After captaining the Harlequins to the Premiership title in 2012, Chris was also awarded the Rugby Union Writers Award. Chris is still a regular player for England, and is expected to be called up to the World Cup squad later this year.

Aside from Rugby, Chris has been the face of campaigns for companies such as Nike and Dress 2 Kill. He is also involved in several charities and owns a boutique coffee chain, Josies.
