Robinson killed the England national team’s attempt when they took the William Webb Ellis Cup 19 years ago, and believes the country’s current head coach Jones has a special talent.
Arundel qualifies for England, Scotland, Wales and Cyprus. Robinson insists he should not be lost to any other nation.
“If he (Arundel) will create such moments, then you have to give him a chance to see what he is capable of at the next level,” said Robinson, who is now 47 years old. Sports Mail.
“I know that there is a little struggle now in terms of who he owes. You wouldn’t want someone like that to slip through the net.
Arundel can quickly go to the England national team after a sensational start to his career
“I hope he will have a chance, and if England doesn’t tie him up, there will be a big queue of people.
“I don’t watch the game so often and admire it, but I have to admit it was the most exciting I’ve been in a long time.
“Watching such an attempt is special, and I’m sure we will see replays for a long time.”
Virtually unheard of outside the Irish at the start of the season, Arundel’s stunning performances with the London club and England under-20 team had already caught Jones ’eye even before his brilliance at Stud Felix Mayol.

Sportsmail understands that Jones has established personal contacts with Arandel – who, like Robinson, can play both on defenders and on the flanks – and is confident that he wants to wear the Red Rose at a senior level. This could happen as soon as a series of three tests with Australia take place in July.
“If there’s one thing every team needs, it’s people who can run the entire length of the field and create something out of nothing,” said Robinson, who was famous for his electric leg swings.
“He (Arundel) certainly did it over the weekend. The main thing for him – do not burst the bubble – do it consistently.
“There is a difference between club and European rugby and then international rugby, but the attempt was just great.
The British Arundel left a trail of Toulon defenders on his way to landing
“It made my day and I’m not an Irish fan. Now he has set a very high bar, and he needs to meet a lot, but he deserves all the praise he receives.
Arundel, who hails from the South West and played club rugby in Bradford-upon-Avon, has just graduated from the prestigious Harrow School.
Castle of England Maro Itohe is also an old boy Harrow and you will not bet that the couple will soon become a teammate.
Arundel went through a system of age categories with both the Irish and England and quickly gained a reputation for outstanding individual attempts.
His efforts in Toulon were not his first result in the 100 meters of the season. He made a similar attempt against Scotland in six nations under the age of 20 and was no stranger to crossing the Irish both in the Gallagher Premier League and in the club’s exit to the Premier League Rugby Cup final.
However, his attempt at the Cote d’Azur almost had to be seen to be believed. Not surprisingly, the video quickly went viral on social media.
When his team lost 19-13 in the 74th minute, Arundel gained possession just meters from his own line and continued to show outrageous foot twists, leaving attempts at selection.

Arundel, who carefully led the Irish and made only two starts in the Premier League, then climbed to the last two French defenders and finished in the corner.
Robinson, who has scored 28 attempts for England and two for the Lions in a brilliant career, believes Arandel’s attempt has shown that he has an intelligence in rugby that is in line with his undoubted pace.
“It was a world-class finish – it’s that simple,” he said. “There were a lot of different parts in the attempt that made it even better.
“First of all, he went back when he took the ball because the Irish were chasing back to cover the shot.”
“As a person who loved to take players, I know that the best ball to attack is the ball on the front foot. There was an initial break, then an arc, and he kept up his pace.
Robinson was duly impressed by Arandel’s excellent attempt and the novice’s maturity
“The players were covering from different angles – his spatial awareness was fantastic.
“You thought he was going to be caught a couple of times, and then he put in the key parts of the leg work at the right time, which helped him go all the way.
“The test he did about 25 meters was world class. He has probably covered about 100 meters so far, so it was very impressive to gain self-control for that. “
“The key when you attack is to be decisive, make decisions quickly, and then stick to that decision. You can see that every moment he makes a decision and then starts.
“For me, it showed maturity in his attack. It was one of the best attempts I’ve seen in a long, long time. Most players would get it – no doubt about it. “
