Loved Rads biography some great insight into the Millward era
The Rads one is my favourite, John Monies was also very inciteful. His comparison of Andy Platt and Shaun Wane was "interesting" Graeme Wests was awful.

The Hunslet Club in the article is not Hunslet Hawks or even a RL club, but a local club.
Clearly there are two versions of Robinson's story. Finding another mention of either version doesn't prove it true.
Good luck, hope you come up with some hard evidence.

The article does mention Robinson starting his career at Hunslet Hawks in 1991 though.

like I said before your evidence came from a website that isnt right anyway as it has an imcomplete database so is sloppy and lazy so where is your hard evidence? I gave you another link that says so but you havent got one, we had wiki but you deleted it as you didnt agree with it, you then said my evidence could have come from wiki so dismissed that....how much more do you want?

I don't want anything except to find the truth. I've emailed Hunslet Hawks to see if they can help. May take a while during lockdown.

I find the "my dad's bigger than your dad" approach a bit tiresome & I'm sure many who use this site are bored with the discussion.

Robinson played for Wigan's academy team in 1990/91 season. They beat Hull in the final in May 1991 and he's pictured with the team. He was born in July 1974, making him 16 during that season.

Now since you had to be 16 to sign pro, when does he got in a year with New Hunslet?

That's me out of the discussion unless or until I find any more, clearer info. As I said before, there are contradictions, but we won't solve them by who shouts loudest or longest.
