Originally started his career at Carlton and vice-captained their Thirds to flags in 1948 and 1949. When he became old enough to play senior football he was residentially tied to the Demons and transferred there in 1950. He made his debut the next season, and was lightly played over four seasons after that.

Robinson's best season was his first, where he played 14 matches and despite only appearing in one win received four Brownlow Medal votes. The pacy defender missed the 1952 pre-season as he was running professionally in Stawell and didn't play a senior match for the season. An attempted comeback was thwarted in 1953 by injured ankle tendons, which prompted him to retire.

He didn't manage another game in his comeback season, and was cleared to Carlton at the end of 1954. The Blues had sought a clearance for his return as early as 1953 but had been refused. He didn't make his debut with the Blues until 1956 and added just two more senior games.
