George Robson is a powerful second-row who plays for Harlequins.
Robson represented England at under 16 and under 18 levels and, after coming through their academy, he made his Harlequins debut in February 2006 against Coventry at the Stoop. An impressive season in 2007/08 earned Robson a new contract until 2010.
In September 2009 he was banned for six weeks for striking Wasps scrum-half Joe Simpson with his head in a Premiership match. However he continued to put in strong performances for Quins and signed a new contract in December 2009.
He began the 2010-11 season as first-choice in the Quins engine room. And after experiencing Amlin Challenge Cup glory at the end of the 2010-11 season, Robson furthered his England claims with a series of impressive performances for Quins during the 2011-12 season.
