Career

Club

Beginning his rugby career in Leicester Tigers's Academy structure, Ford-Robinson then moved to National League 1 club Cambridge for two seasons before progressing to RFU Championship side Cornish Pirates in 2014.[2][3]

Ford-Robinson then switched to Bristol Rugby for the 2015/16 season and aided in their promotion into the Aviva Premiership that season.[4] The prop made 48 appearances in a Bristol shirt and suffered with the club as they were relegated back to the Championship at the end of the 2016/17 campaign.[5] The young prop left his hometown of Bristol to join Northampton Saints for the 2017/18 season after signing for the Midlands club on February 2, 2017.[6]. In March 2019, Ford-Robinson signed a 2-year deal with Premiership Rivals Gloucester Rugby.[7]

International

Before joining Northampton, Ford-Robinson was noticed by England and was first called into the international team that defeated the Barbarians at Twickenham on May 28, 2017, before being added to the touring squad that traveled to Argentina in the summer of 2017 as injury cover for Worcester Warriors' Nick Schonert.[8][9]
