Chris Robshaw Lands His First Job Since Confirming His Retirement, It’s Very Different – Ruck

Former England captain Chris Robshaw has landed his first new role since retiring from rugby, and it’s something very different.

The flanker had been playing for the San Diego Legion in the United States since leaving Quins in the summer of 2020, after 16 years at the club.

He won 66 England caps and captained in 43 of those appearances.

The 36-year-old now works part-time for Gallagher, who are the main sponsor of the English Premiership.

Robshaw led Harlequins to their first Premiership title in 2012 and played 300 times for the club. He was twice named Premiership Player of the Year.

“After 18 years of professional rugby and a career I could only dream of, I officially announce my retirement from the big game,” Robshaw said.

“After three dislocated shoulders in quick succession, my body told me to blow the final whistle.

“No words can do justice to how lucky and privileged I am to have had a career in the sport that I am most passionate about.”

After his first day on the job, he wrote on Linked In: “Enjoyable first day learning the ropes with Karen Ellis and the Gallagher team. I look forward to joining them 2 days a week as I enter the next chapter of my life.

Robshaw currently has a number of other businesses including as a board member of Dress 2 Kill Ltd, co-owner of Zeus Events and co-owner of Josies Coffee Shop.

Josies is a family-run group of independent cafes serving specialty coffee, tea, smoothies as well as all-day breakfast and brunch.

Their goal is simple: to provide freshly prepared, good quality food and drink in a welcoming and accessible space.
