The Dyldam Parramatta Eels have today announced the signing of Jeff Robson for the remainder of the 2016 season.

The 33-year-old halfback has joined the Eels after being granted a release from the New Zealand Warriors on compassionate grounds earlier this week.

Robson returns to the Blue and Gold after playing 61 games for the club between 2009 and 2011, and has also spent time at the Sea Eagles, Sharks and Warriors.

“Jeff is a very experienced playmaker who will add depth to our side this season,” Head Coach Brad Arthur said.

“He’ll also be a great asset to work alongside the young and developing centres and second rowers in our reserve grade side.”
