Waratah backrower Beau Robinson will return to country Rugby this weekend when he lines up for the Dubbo Rhinos against the Parkes Boars in the Central West competition.

Born in Alice Springs, Robinson played his junior Rugby with the Dubbo Roos and Dubbo Rhinos before going on to captain St Stanislaus College (Bathurst) 1st XV in 2004.

Joining the Waratah Academy in 2005, Robinson made his first grade debut for Northern Suburbs as a 19-year-old in 2006 and last year made his Super 14 debut for NSW.

With Robinson narrowly missing out on selection in the match day 22 for the past three weeks, Head Coach Ewen McKenzie is keen to see the robust flanker receive some game time this weekend.

‘Beau’s a born and bred country boy and it’s great to see him get back to his roots to play for Dubbo this weekend,’ said McKenzie. ‘It’s not something you see too often in the modern game but he goes with our blessing and I’ll be monitoring his performance because he’s still a very big part of our 2008 campaign.

‘We’d be hesitant about him going if we were concerned about the standard but the Central West competition and country Rugby in general is pretty strong and we know he’ll get a good hit-out.’

The Dubbos Rhinos are on the road tomorrow when they will play the Parkes Boars at Pioneer Oval.

Robinson sought a transfer from Northern Suburbs to Gordon in the off-season, however with the Highlanders having already exhausted their transfer limit*, Robinson is currently without a club in the Tooheys New Shute Shield.
