Jeff is an Australian former professional rugby league footballer who last played for the Parramatta Eels.
Robson made his NRL debut for the Manly sea Eagles in 2004 against the Cronulla Sharks. After only making 6 appearances in 4 years with Manly, Robson signed for Paramatta Eels at the start of 2009. He played 61 games over 3 years for the Eels. In 2012 Robson joined the Sharks, settling for 4 years playing 92 games in that time.
While professional footballers are sometimes criticised for having too much time on their hands, nothing could be further from the truth in regards to the veteran half back. Whilst playing for Cronulla, his wife Gabi travelled to and from the city for work, so either side of training sessions, he spent most time looking after daughter Charlotte and taking her to and from her special school.
Charlotte is one of more than 120,000 Australians who have been diagnosed with autism. She’s in the minority, because only 20 per cent are females.
Robson joined the New Zealand Warriors for the 2016 season.[ The flexibility offered by the Warriors has made the decision to move away from his family easier. Wife Gabi and their three-year-old daughter Charlotte will remain in Sydney while Robson will split his time between the two countries. A very personal journey, Jeff is committed to raising awareness of Autism and explaining the importance of support to all those he encounters. Not unlike Luke Priddis himself, every opportunity should be taken to use your own profile to advocate for those in need and in our case – ASD is a part life!
