Former Wales centre Jamie Robinson has ended his playing career because of injury.

The 33-year-old has spent the past three season playing for Agen in the French championship.

He first moved to France in 2009 to join Toulon after spending 10 years at Cardiff Arms Park with Cardiff and then Cardiff Blues.

"After nearly 15 years of professional rugby I'm having to retire due to injury," he announced on Twitter.

"I'd like to thank everyone who's helped me along the way, from players, coaches, medical staff and supporters."

Since moving to France, Robinson failed to add to the 23 Wales caps he accumulated between 2001 and 2007.

He scored seven international tries, which included scores against New Zealand, Australia and France.

He added: "A big thank you to the three clubs I've represented but especially to Cardiff RFC and the Cardiff Blues, a great club and a club which will always feel like home.

"Of course I could never have done anything without the massive support of my family an friends. Looking forward to the next part of my life."
