Biography

Explosive front-rower with plenty of Super League experience. Imposing with ball in hand and packing a punch in defence, the Frenchman is the type of player that fans love to see, with the potential to become a cult hero at The Shay.

He played in the victorious Toronto Wolfpack side that gained promotion to Super League via the Million Pound Game in 2019, and Fax will be hoping he can bring his big game experience to the table when it matters most.

Biography

Robinson signs a 2 year deal to return to Halifax for a second spell, having spent three years with York City Knights.

An accomplished goal kicker with good ball skills, the points scoring machine was named League 1 player of the season during York’s promotion campaign and helped them make the Championship play offs during their first year back in the division.

He will be tasked with making our attack tick, alongside fellow recruit Liam Harris. The pair know each others games from their time in the academy system at Hull.

With a turn of pace and an eye for a gap, 2021 stands to be a big year for the 25 year old half back as Panthers chase a return to the top flight.
