Profile

Although he was a wicketkeeper-batsman, Richie Robinson's three Test appearances came on the 1977 tour of England as a specialist batsman (Rod Marsh was the undisputed No. 1 keeper). He had finished top of the Sheffield Shield batting averages in 1976-77, and on the tour as a whole scored 715 runs at 37.63 ( as well as taking more catches than Marsh). But in the Tests he struggled, and with his flaws in his technique exposed by England's seamers, he managed only 100 runs at 16.66. His only international high was a superb 70 in Australia's dramatic Prudential Trophy win at The Oval. Robinson also toured England, again as Marsh's understudy, in 1975. He captained Victoria.
