Jason Robinson's last ever try for Sale Sharks

Jason Robinson bows out in style

Jason Robinson brought down the curtain on his club career with a fairytale last-minute try to beat Bath 25-23.

What a way to end his club career. One of the best finishers in the game waiting until the clock was dead to write his own script and go out in style, showing the kind of vintage Robinson class and explosiveness that made him one of the most feared runners in the game.

Update: The clip has been edited and shortened, so doesn't show the other highlights any more, just features the Robinson winner and interview.

if he d spent his whole career in union, he would have been up there with the greats. when he was a kid playing in league for wigan, he was even faster.

jason robinson is one of the greatest players to ever represent the red rose of England rugby, theres simply no argument to that fact! devastating pace and elusive as blowing smoke through a keyhole, even us 1 eyed Gloucester fans will miss him!

it is a shame, he will be sorely missed by every english rugby fan, and probably many non english. as someone else mentioned, a montage of his greatest tries would go down very well, RD ;)
