Rebels' Robinson ready for Super start

A Kiwi who plays in Australia whose favourite team, apart from his own Melbourne Rebels, is South African - Ged Robinson really embraces Super Rugby.

The Rebels hooker will have his first start of the season after recovering from a calf injury at AAMI Park on Sunday afternoon against the Cheetahs, who happen to be the side he most likes to watch.

"The Cheetahs are a really interesting side to look at, they're probably my favourite team to watch," said Robinson.

"They really try to promote playing with the ball and their forwards do as well.

"They play with a lot of continuity; it's an enjoyable game to watch."

Robinson, who was Melbourne's first choice hooker last season, will have a top-notch view, starting on the bench with former Wallaby Adam Freier retaining the starting jersey.

Freier himself battled injury which kept him sidelined for the bulk of the side's debut year.

"He's played 30-odd Tests for the Wallabies and almost 100 Super games," Robinson said of his teammate.

"Anyone that can clock up something like that deserves to be respected and he's been playing really good footy."

Melbourne coach Damien Hill said while he felt for the omitted Luke Holmes, he was happy to see Robinson return.

"It's good to see Ged back, he was one of our stand-out players last year as the starting hooker," Hill said.

The Rebels are looking for their first win after coming desperately close last round against the Super champions Queensland.

They lost star fullback Kurtley Beale (calf) and outside centre Mitch Inman (hamstring) at their Friday training session, with Julian Huxley and Lloyd Johansson winning their first starts.

Inconsistency was a major stain on their inaugural year and Hill said the side couldn't afford it again this season.

The winless Cheetahs are a danger after losing their past two games by a combination of three points.

"We've spoken about consistency; it's not good enough for this team this year to put in a good second half against the Waratahs and then a good game against the Reds and then take that as good enough to be able to take the foot off the pedal," Hill said.

"We need to continue to build; the team's shown what they can do and we need that to continue against the Cheetahs."
