The NSW Waratahs have today confirmed the signing of former rugby league player Reece Robinson on a contract that will see him join the Super Rugby side on a two year contract from 2016. Robinson, who played with the Parramatta Eels in the 2015 NRL season, was recruited to add depth to the options for the Waratahs on the wing.
NSW Waratahs Head Coach Daryl Gibson says the addition of Robinson would provide good support for the team in the backs, and add a diverse experience to the squad.
“Reece will add a lot to our squad, we’re really pleased to have secured him for the 2016 season onwards,” Gibson said.
“He’s an excellent finisher, and his versatility across the field and experience in rugby league will definitely bring something different to the team – and to be able to add someone of his quality to our back three depth is a real bonus for us.
“We’ve got proven experience in transitioning league players into the rugby environment and we’re constantly improving this development process, we’re confident that Reece will achieve success with us and look to players like Israel and Sam [Lousi] for guidance along the way.”
