 Rob Burrow (D)

“Leeds Rhinos and Great Britain rugby league great Rob Burrow has died.
Burrow, who was 41, had lived with motor neurone disease (MND) for nearly five years after being diagnosed in late 2019.
The diagnosis came just two years after he retired from playing, following a stellar 17-year career that included winning eight Super League Grand Finals, three World Club Challenges and two Challenge Cups.
Burrow`s death was announced by Leeds Rhinos, who called their former player "a true inspiration throughout his life whether that was on the rugby league field or during his battle with MND".”

Another sad day for rugby as another legend of the game passes with MND :(

I am a big rugby league fan, and Rob was one of those players that you wish played for you rather than against you.
What he lacked in stature he more than made up for in heart and desire.
I am by no means a Leeds Rhinos fan, but both he and Kevin Sinfield have been truly inspirational since the diagnosis.
I am sure there will be a fitting tribute at the Wigan v Warrington challenge cup final next weekend.

Really sad news. Rob was an amazing player and one opponent I always hated & admired in equal measure! (I`m a St Helens fan)

His fight against MND was inspirational and the rugby league world has lost a real legend today.

Rest in peace, wee man - we`ll all miss you immensely 💔🫶🦏


COME ON YE PARS!
