Robinson keeps on pressing his claims

SUNSHINE Coast captain Tom Murphy believes outside back Travis Robinson is doing "everything right" in his bid to earn NRL game time.

The 28-year-old played nine games for Penrith in 2013 before linking with the Melbourne Storm.

But he is yet to lace up for the NRL side.

This year, he's bided his time at the Falcons, waiting and hoping for a promotion.

And he's clearly impressed Murphy.

"He's been a really consistent performer for us week-in and week-out," he said.

"You always know what you're going to get with Trav. He's been one of our better players every weekend so he's doing everything right to get the call-up and hopefully his shot comes sooner rather than later I guess."

With his contract at the Storm due to expire at the end of the season, the future is unclear for Robinson.

In the meantime, he will continue to press his claims for an NRL spot with the Sunshine Coast.

"He's got that utility role here where he can play in the centres or wing or fullback, so he covers a lot of positions in the outside backs which is good for us," Murphy said.

The Lebanon international, who is the brother of Canberra winger Reece Robinson, has been named on the wing for the Falcons' Intrust Super Cup clash with the lowly Capras at Bokarina tomorrow (1.40pm).

But there is a chance he could play at fullback; with some suggestions Ben Hampton may be moved from the custodian role to five-eighth if impressive match-winner Kurt Mann is needed by Melbourne.

The Sunshine Coast may also be without big prop Nelson Asofa-Solomona, who could also be promoted to the Storm for its clash with the Titans tomorrow.

After a largely torrid campaign, the Falcons are shooting for their third win in four outings.

The side is 11th of 14 teams but faces a side which is last, in round 21 of 25 rounds. The match will be televised.

LADDER: TOWNSVILLE 35, PNG 35, IPSWICH 32, WYNNUM MANLY 30, Easts 26, Northern 26, Mackay 24, Redcliffe 21, Burleigh 20, Tweed Heads 19, Sunshine Coast 17, Souths Logan 15, Norths 12, CQ 6.
