New Zealand lock Keith Robinson has made a remarkable return to contact training barely a week after being warned his career could be over because of lingering back and knee injuries.

An unsuccessful visit to a Hamilton surgeon sparked reports the second row forward could be set to announce a premature retirement ahead of the British & Irish Lions tour this summer.

But on Tuesday he took part in training at a two-day Chiefs camp in Whangamata on the Coromandel.

All Blacks coach Graham Henry is certain to be paying close attention to Robinson’s progress, especially with lock one of the positions in which the New Zealand selectors have few options.
