Chris Robshaw backs Nike in using Colin Kaepernick for advertising campaign

Chris Robshaw has given her support to fellow Nike endorsed athlete Colin Kaepernick, despite the American athletics brand facing a backlash for including him in its latest advertising campaign.

The England and Harlequins flanker posted the advert on Instagram along with the clapping emoji, clearly supporting the controversial campaign.


@nike 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻

Caepernick was the first NFL player to kneel during the national anthem to highlight racial injustice.

But critics have burned Nike trainers and clothing in protest at the decision to use Kaepernick in a campaign.

All seems a bit over the top.
