Playing career[edit]

2008: Career with Brisbane[edit]

Robinson made his first grade debut for the Brisbane Broncos in round 1, 2008, against the Penrith Panthers[citation needed], a match which the Broncos ultimately won 48-12. His contract with the Brisbane Broncos was not renewed for the 2009 season,[2] but Robinson was picked up by the North Sydney Bears, the feeder club for the South Sydney Rabbitohs, in the NSWRL Cup in 2009.

On 12 December 2009, Robinson was picked up by the Canberra Raiders after recommendation from current Newcastle Knights coach Wayne Bennett. Robinson previously played in youth grades for the Cronulla Sharks and the South Sydney Rabbitohs. Reece came from the clouds to score an impressive 4 tries v the Cowboys on Saturday 28 August 2010.

2015-present: Career with Parramatta[edit]

On 15 October 2014, Robinson signed a one-year deal with the Parramatta Eels to be a candidate to replace the departed Eels fullback Jarryd Hayne.[3][4]

Representative career[edit]

Robinson was named to the Lebanon national rugby league team training squad for the 2009 European Cup[5] and went on to play in the tournament, scoring a hat-trick of tries against the Italy national rugby league team.
