RIP Rob Burrow

So sad. The poor man and his family have had so much to deal with. He was just 41yrs old and was diagnosed just 5 yrs ago.
Thoughts are with his family …

Very sad I didn't realise he was so young as I don't follow Rugby. RIP.

Not sure I could read that to be honest Marko.

Such a hideous disease, perhaps even more so for a person who lived his life at the pinnacle of fitness and physicality.

Much worse than a read, Ricco…… Was a video. Feckin heartbreaking.

Would advise anyone going to watch that couple minute clip, do it after work.

Christ Marko, I just watched it and it most certainly brought tears to my eyes too.

Rob Burrow was an inspiration and true legend both on and off the pitch and taken way too soon by such a cruel disease. Sincere condolences to his family and closest friends. RIP 🌹
