The rugby league world is in mourning following the news that the body of Chad Robinson has been found in Sydney today.
Robinson went missing from his home in Kellyville on November 26.
New South Wales police only last weekend pleaded for more information as to the whereabouts of the former Rooster and Eel with his family looking for answers.
News Limited is reporting that tradesmen working in the area located a vehicle belonging to Robinson early on Thursday afternoon, near the intersection of Marieba and Porters Road in Kenthurst.
Tributes are starting to pour in from the rugby league community, headed by NRL CEO Todd Greenberg.
On behalf of all of us at the @NRL we send our condolences to the family of Chad Robinson-Hug your families & always look out for each other

Not only did Robinson make a significant impact for Parramatta and the Sydney Roosters in the 159 NRL games he played, but also in the UK where he played for the London Harlequins back in 2009 in making 15 appearances in Super League XIV.
His loss will be felt on both sides of the hemisphere.
Our thoughts are with the family and friends of Chad Robinson at this tragic time.
