Chris Robshaw Says Harlequins Are Better Off Without Marland Yarde At The Club

The fallout from Marland Yarde’s departure from Harlequins looks set to continue as Chris Robshaw has come out with some pretty strong comments against his former teammate. 

No one knows for sure the full situation surrounding Yarde’s arrival at the AJ Bell Stadium. It has been widely reported that Yarde has missed a number of training sessions for the club which has contributed to Quins’ decision to let him go. 

It seems that John Kingston’s patience finally told and he had enough of Yarde’s behaviour, a decision which Chris Robhsaw agrees with. 

“I am disappointed in him. Marland has unfortunately run out of lives and for us as a club we are going to be in a better place now,” Robshaw told Sky Sports.

“It’s a massive shame for the club because he’s a talented player, but John has made a great stance.

“I think he’s run out of lives and we’ll be in a better place for it.

This comes off the back of Yarde’s statement last night which failed to address the circumstances surrounding his departure but he did thank all of those at Harlequins for the last couple of years and stated his excitement of starting a new chapter in his career at Sale.
