Got something to discuss about RL in general? Then this is the place to post it.

Rob Burrow

So, so sad to hear about Rob Burrow. I don't know any medical details, but you have to wonder whether its another result of blows to the head. On the other hand, what a sensational publicity team he's make with Doddie Weir. I wonder if they've been in touch?

I've just watched the interview with Rob and Tanya Arnold, and it is so heartbreaking to watch. Tanya is visibly emotional as he tells his story of his diagnosis of this awful illness. But it was lovely to see Kevin Sinfield step in and console Rob as the emotion got the better of him. Great that the online fund has topped £100,000 which will support his treatment and his wife and young family. This wonderful person, and true gentleman needs all the support he can get and I'm sure the rugby league family will join together to provide it. Keep going Rob. Mine and my family's hearts go out to you.

I would hope the fund goes way past the £150k fund, his young children will need a lot more support than that.
I would hope we all use it as a reason to cut down on a couple of pints each evening up to New Year and donate the cash to the fund.

Video of him receiving the American football jersey and cap touched me. His voice has already started to get effected and he’s looking abit gaunt already.
Awful illness, it’s such a shame

Didn't see the game but watched Rob's post match interview on skysports. I think the rugby league community/family as a whole should be really proud and I thought it was fantastic to see Headingly sold out. I suppose sometimes support in numbers is far better than any amount of money raised!

Emotional interview but Rob seems still very determined to fight on! Keep marching on Rob!

Just as a testimonial should be, new side for the first half and a chance to see greats from yesteryear in the closing stages, great crowd too sometimes life transcends everything and this was one of those times.

Plus one from me Mickw. Rob Is a great bloke with a big heart and it's a bit rotten that this type of thing happens to the ones who least deserve it
