In this section of the site, you can see profiles of the Cardiff Blues squad members. It includes, information and photos on the players and coaches at the Arms Park.
Nicky Robinson is one of Cardiff's hottest prospects and an exciting player to watch.
Nick had a great 03/04 season, playing back-up to Iestyn Harris, and then taking his spot, with the former rugby league man moving to 12. At the end of that season, Nicky was called up to the Wales squad to tour Argentina, making 5 appearances before a mystery virus cruelly struck him down in the summer.
Like brother Jamie, his season has been ridden by injury, the virus left him stuck in bed, with 'a constant hangover' as he told me. Nicky made 12 appearances in 2005, and with each of them, he's looked quicker, sharper and more like his best. Nicky made the USA tour for this summer in which he started both games against Canada and the US.
This season he will be looking to build a mouth-watering partnership with new signing, Mike Phillips, a duo that could realistically last a decade.
His contract expires at the end of the 06/07 season.
