Chad Damian Robinson (20 October 1980 – 26 November 2016) was an Australian professional rugby league footballer. Robinson spent several years in Australia's National Rugby League with the Parramatta Eels and the Sydney Roosters and a season with Super League side Harlequins RL.

Robinson had been reported missing on 26 November 2016, but less than a month later on 22 December 2016, he was found dead in his car.

Playing career

Having won the 2002 NRL Premiership, Robinson traveled to England to play the 2003 World Club Challenge against Super League champions, St Helens R.F.C. Robinson played from the interchange bench in Sydney's victory. He played from the interchange bench for the Roosters in the 2003 NRL grand final which they lost to the Penrith Panthers. Robinson played for the Sydney Roosters from the interchange bench in their 2004 NRL grand final loss to cross-city rivals, Canterbury-Bankstown.

In 2005, Robinson joined Parramatta and played 20 games as the club won the minor premiership. Parramatta went into the finals series as one of the favourites to take out the 2005 premiership but lost 29-0 to North Queensland in the preliminary final in a shock upset. Robinson subsequently played in Parramatta's finals campaigns in 2006 and in 2007 which saw the club reach the 2007 preliminary final against Melbourne. Robinson's last year at Parramatta saw the club fail to reach the finals and he departed the side at the end of 2008. In July 2008 he signed a two year deal with the Super League side Harlequins starting in 2009.
