Sorry PT, but I had to comment after just watching it , on my own. Wow, what a guy and what a family he has around him. How emotional that was, a true hero :BOW: I’m stuck for words. I hope they find a cure soon for future sufferers :PRAY:

I watched it again myself, BLM and sat and reflected on it for a while. I make no apologies for what I'm going to say, but on the spectrum of humanity on one end we have Rob Burrow, and on the opposite end we have Donald Trump. And people tell me there's a God!! My heart goes out to the lad and his family. I have to admit that before this horrible illness he was to me another of those pesky "Leeds Rhinos brats", but he was always the most acceptable of them all. Keep battling on Rob, lad.

I’m sure I’ve mentioned it before, but I had the pleasure of first meeting Rob at Horbury Academy, believe it or not he presented Jordan with a trophy, Wakefield were playing Leeds the following Friday and we had a good natter about it, what a true gentleman he was, understand what you’re saying regarding Leeds players but strangely never thought of him ever in the same category, I can’t speak highly enough about him.

Know him quite well from my three years at the Rhinos.

Back then, he had just come up through the academy.

Watched the documentary tonight, and found it very difficult.

Hopefully, a cure for this awful disease can be found very quickly, before it takes hold of other people’s lives

Heartbreaking, I coached Rob when he was younger and he always made a point of having a natter when he saw me. Lovely parents as well. Its only 3 months since I spoke to his uncle who said he was fine apart from his voice so things have gone downhill rapidly. Impossible to hold back the tears.

Glad you started this thread BLM as I noticed that the other one has been locked.
I watched it last night and as I suspected I knew it would be a difficult watch, even as someone who unfortunately has had to care for people with this horrible condition.
What struck me so much was the sad and quick deterioration in Rob's condition, but his outlook on like is so positive.
He always has been my fave Dirty Leeds player, the little guy thinking he's a big guy and chasing a big dirty Hull player up the park wanting to fight him..... :lol:
All the best to Rob and his family.

I’ve seen a lot of upsetting things during my 38 mining career and thought I was hardened to things but obviously not then add kids into the equation makes it even more upsetting, glad I watched it but I’ll be thinking about it for ages now.

Heartbreaking watching him dazzle on the field at such an early age and make it all the way to the top in a sport that was all about bigger is better .An inspirational guy ,and one I loved to watch play as long as it wasn’t against us.How cruel to be struck down in his prime with such a young family to care for ,very humbling and thought provoking and I truly wish the lad and his family all the best ,a real choker of a program for me

It’s so sad seeing rob deteriorate so quickly
He’s being such a great servant to rl, he doesn’t deserve it
No one does

Some lovely heartfelt comments on here from you Trin fans regarding Rob's cruel disease

We all have our rivalries on game day, Myself included

But IMO we have the best sporting family in the world and the way that the RL world has stood strong behind Rob is a testament to that :CLAP:

to all those that criticised this team...
