  1. Good luck to you Robbie. A real shame you felt you couldn’t play here in England, but probably the correct assumption. We need more role models like yourself for our youngsters.

  2. Robbie – Glad you feel you have now made the right decision returning to to play and feel liberated.
    Its a pity you could not return to Britain to play, but probably the best decision – and LA weather and climate is better.
    You will be a good role model, hope it all goes well for you.
