Trent Robinson has added his name to an exclusive list of coaches last night, after guiding his Sydney Roosters side to a premiership in his first season in the NRL.

Robinson, who is one of the lowest-paid coaches in the competition, is in line for a bumper wage increase after matching the feat of Ricky Stuart, who led the club to the 2002 premiership in his rookie year.

Phil Gould (Canterbury 1988), Michael Hagan (Newcastle 2001), Ian Walsh (St George 1969) and Leo Nosworthy (Balmain 1969) also achieved the feat.

Robinson has already won the Dally M coach of the year award and Roosters chairman Nick Pollitis will almost certainly have to pull out his chequebook to keep the 37-year-old.

However, the former Catalans coach, who joined the club at the start of the year having served as an assistant under Brian Smith in 2010, deflected the credit of his success to his assistants and backroom staff.
