Robinson was described by former Sale Sharks team-mate Steve Hanley as “quite simply, the best player to have ever played rugby” after just seven years in union.
The electric winger/full-back scored 33 tries in 112 Premiership Rugby games, captaining Sale to their first-ever Premiership title and two European Challenge Cups.
He is a two-time British & Irish Lion and scored 28 England tries in 51 appearances in addition to lifting the Webb Ellis Trophy alongside Kay.
