Benn Robinson: Re-signed with Australia Rugby for a further three years
Wallabies front-rower Benn Robinson has re-signed with Australian Rugby for another three years.
Robinson, who could have pursued a career abroad, will remain in Super Rugby after recommitting to the ARU and NSW Waratahs until the end of 2016.
The 28-year-old will feature in his 58th Test on Saturday night as Australia take on the British and Irish Lions in the second Test in Melbourne.
"There's still a lot more I'd like to achieve in Australia," said Robinson.
"The options were there to look at going overseas but I love living in Sydney, and enjoy what I am doing at the moment. I'm just not ready to leave.
"I remain as proud now to wear the sky blue, and the gold, as I was the first time I put both jerseys on.
"I'm not big on either titles or statistics, but captaining my state, and then playing my 50th Test - both of which happened last year - are experiences that I will never forget."
