English great Burrow diagnosed with motor neurone disease


Leeds: Former Great Britain and England halfback/hooker Rob Burrow has announced he’s been diagnosed with motor neurone disease at the age of 37.

Burrow, who at 165cm was the smallest player in Super League, retired after winning his eighth grand final at the end of the 2017 season, having played almost 500 games for Leeds Rhinos.

The 37-year-old father of three spent his entire career at Leeds, making 492 appearances, and also won 15 caps for England and five for Great Britain.

“Regrettably, I am confirming that I have been diagnosed with motor neurone disease,” Burrow said.
