Rugby league legend Rob Burrow dies aged 41


Leeds Rhinos and Great Britain rugby league great Rob Burrow has died.

Burrow, who was 41, had lived with motor neurone disease (MND) since 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 the Rhinos, who called their former scrum-half and hooker “a true inspiration throughout his life whether that was on the rugby league field or during his battle with MND”.
