Beau Robinson returns home to give back to grassroots rugby

By Angus Kenelly Beau Robinson’s rugby journey has taken him all around the world but after retiring from professional rugby at the end of 2017, he’s ended up exactly where it started. Robinson has returned to Dubbo in Central West NSW and will coach Dubbo Roos’ first grade side in 2018. “I’m really enjoying the weather and the lifestyle in Dubbo. It’s really good to be back” Robinson’s side were beaten by defending premiers Forbes 31-7 in round one on Saturday, but the former Super Rugby champion is confident of his side’s chances this year, following the recruitment of former Randwick captain Mark Baldwin. “I first came across Mark when we both played NRC for the NSW Country Eagles. I was really impressed with his work ethic and his eagerness to learn. He was always asking questions and wanting to improve as a player.” Robinson says there is no specific leadership group at the club but has definitely noticed Baldwin’s qualities as a leader.
