Former Irish national team rugger Robinson impressed with Cayman

Former Ireland National team player Brian Robinson says he’s impressed with the state of Cayman Islands rugby but says the club has tough choices to make in order to keep improving.

Robinson earned 25 caps with Ireland and scored six tries, four of them coming in a Rugby World Cup match versus Zimbabwe in 1991. He recently was in Cayman to hold youth clinics with youth players.

“I think they’ve done really well,” said Robinson, currently the Head of Physical Education at Campbell College, in Northern Ireland. “They’ve gone to Hong Kong Sevens this year, which is a great achievement. Their 19s and their ladies are all developing well. There’s a certain playing population, so they’ve got a decision to make in respect to how they move to the next level. So I think they can be really proud of what they’ve achieved so far. They have really good structures in place and I suppose it depends if they want to develop this facility here to get bigger or also to get the practical problems to go away to get players more experience.”

Robinson says this was his second visit to the Cayman Islands to work with youth players.
