Prop star left with mixed emo­tions

The Rugby Paper - - Aviva Premiership -

NORTHAMP­TON-bound Ja­mal Ford-Robin­son was dis­ap­pointed he could not sign off with a win for the Bris­tol fans.

He will move to Franklin’s Gar­dens next sea­son as he con­tin­ues his rise from his Cor­nish Pi­rates roots.

He said: “I’m not feel­ing one emo­tion, I’m feel­ing ev­ery­thing right now. I’m sad to be mov­ing on from a club I’ve really en­joyed play­ing for and call home. But I’m ex­cited for what’s com­ing in the fu­ture at Northamp­ton.

“We really wanted that last win at home, it’s what we’ve been talk­ing about all week, but we didn’t come out of the blocks quick enough.

“In the sec­ond-half we were a lot bet­ter and we fin­ished on a pos­i­tive. We have got a really tight-knit group with ev­ery­thing we’ve been through.

“New­cas­tle were com­ing over with plans to push into that Cham­pi­ons Cup, but re­sults didn’t go their way and I might get a chance in Europe with Saints next sea­son.”
