Reece Robinson (born 13 June 1987) is an Australian professional rugby league player of Indigenous Australian and Lebanese descent who primarily plays on the wing or at fullback for the Canberra Raiders in the National Rugby League (NRL), and is a Lebanon national rugby league team member.[1]

Transactions[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.

Robinson was named to the Lebanon national rugby league team training squad for the 2009 European Cup[3] and went on to play in the tournament, scoring a hat-trick of tries against the Italy national rugby league team.

Relatives[edit]

Robinson has a twin brother, Travis Robinson, who is a member of the Lebanon national rugby league team.[1] Robinson is also a relative of Australian boxer Anthony Mundine, and rugby league player Nathan Merritt.
