RIP fella. 

Poor lad and poor family too, but what an inspiration he's been: him, his lovely family and his PROPER best mate, Sinfield.  Bless them all.

RIP, Rob.

I've never met Rob Burrow but I have to admit, it made me cry, I've been a hugr fan of RL for many a year, I used to dread it when my team (Huddersfield Giants) played Rhinos, with the likes of Sinfield, McGuire, Senior & Burrows came to town

The No7 was 4 foot nothing, and an absolute joy to watch, his runs from dummy half, picking the ball up 1 handed put teams instantly on the back foot, he played the game how it should be played, he played like a 7 foot giant, he got stuck in, wasn't scared to tackle those prop forwards at 18 stone plus, he wore his heart on his sleeve.

I don't like to throw the word "Legend" around easy but this lil player was, the game has lost a an all time great, a legend of the game & will be sorely missed.

Thank you for the memories, one I'm sure those in RL will cherish over a number of years.

My thoughts are with his Wife, kids, family & friends - especially Kevin Sinfield who was not only his team mate but his best friend.

Good night #7 God bless you.

RIP Rob Burrow.
