Jen Lee Robinson (born 30 December 1980) is a former professional rugby union footballer who played on the wing for Plymouth Albion, Bristol Rugby, Leicester, L'Aquila and London Wasps.

Club career[edit]

Robinson joined Bristol from Plymouth Albion in the summer of 2005 and capped a brilliant debut in the Guinness Premiership by scoring a fantastic try against his former academy team Bath on the opening weekend of the 2005/06 season.

Robinson signed a new two-year contract with Bristol during the 2006/07 season. He went on to represent the Barbarians in 2006 and 2007.

Robinson fast became a crowd favourite at the Memorial Ground during the 2009/10 season due to his strong running and constant improvement on the pitch. He missed a number of games in October and November 2009 with a broken nose sustained in a training session in October.

Robinson signed another two-year contract extension with Bristol in March 2009. However, he signed for Leicester Tigers in June 2010, following Bristol's loss to Exeter in the Championship final.[2] After being allowed to leave Leicester Tigers he joined London Wasps on a short term deal. [3] After retiring, Robinson is now self-employed.
