Geoff Robinson, also known as 'Wild Man', was a beloved member of our Bulldogs family. A Premiership player, he played 139 first-grade matches for the Blue and White. He was a formidable forward, renowned for his toughness on the field and admired for his greatness off it.

During the weekend’s match against the Warriors, the Bulldogs paid tribute to Robbo with a minute’s silence, donning black armbands and running out with their socks pulled down to honour the Bulldogs legend - a trademark of the late charger alongside his shoulder-length black hair.

Speaking on Geoff’s legacy at the Club during a mid-week press conference, Head Coach Cameron Ciraldo stated:

He’s just the ultimate competitor. We had Mick potter who played with him talk about what it was like to play with Robbo [with the players], and it sounded like he was the player that everyone wanted to play with.

"I’ve been lucky enough to go to a few ex-player functions and everyone gravitates towards Robbo. He was clearly a loved teammate and a loved person.

"It was awesome for our guys [NRL playing squad] to meet him a few weeks back and understand who he is and what he stood for, and we want to repay that."

Mick Potter paid tribute to his former teammate speaking with Fox Sports' Andrew Voss on match day at Accor Stadium:

"He was awesome to play with. He was one of those guys… it was inspirational what he did on the field, and he was a totally different bloke off the field".

"He’s a great guy, great footy player, great family man. It’s a sad day for us and to be celebrating it is probably something small we can do for him," Potter said of the Club's pre-match tribute.

Voss added: "Everyone in rugby league loved Robbo… he would bleed blue and white."

Canterbury's General Manager of Football and former teammate of the affectionately dubbed, 'Wild Man', Phil Gould took to X to pay his respects to the Canterbury cult figure:

Across social media there was an outpouring of love and support for the hard-charging, family man.

The Bulldogs would like to thank all attendees from Saturday's match, together with those who joined in from home, in paying our respects to 'Robbo' during the moment's silence.

Geoff Robinson, Bulldog 427, will be sorely missed but his memory will forever be etched in the history of the Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs.
