26-year-old Robinson joins Thunder with a solid reputation having made an impressive impact in the sport back in Australia, after growing up in New Zealand playing rugby union.
Hailing from the town of Carterton, his first taste of the 13 man code came at the age of 15 after moving to Australia and representing the New Zealand national team in motocross.
In the intervening years, Robinson has gained a wealth of experience while representing Gold Coast Titans feeder club Burleigh Bears, West Magpies and Ron Massey cup outfit Cabramatta Two Blues.
Impressing throughout, Robinson was selected to feature in reality TV series NRL: The Rookie, before an operation on a hernia forced him to withdraw from the process and after returning to full fitness following his season with the Magpies, is eager for his move to Thunder.
