Waratahs prop calls it quits

Benn Robinson has been forced to retire following a serious eye injury.

The prop was accidently poked in the eye by Brumbies lock Rory Arnold during the Waratahs' round-eight Super Rugby clash.

'Four or five weeks ago after the surgery the doctor pretty much said straight away that I can never play rugby again,' Robinson said. 'Rugby's been a big part of my career for so many years and for it to end like this is very disappointing.'

Robinson played 155 games for the Waratahs and 72 Tests for the Wallabies.
