Such sad news that rugby legend Rob Burrow has passed away.


He has done so much to raise the profile of Motor Neurone Disease and will be sorely missed.  Sincere condolences to all his family, friends and everyone who knew him.

He has indeed. RIP. So very young, too!


The Australian equivalent would be former Essendon footballer and Melbourne coach Neale Daniher who is five years to the day older than I am.


Neale and his three brothers all played for Essendon (the club of my father too) and he was diagnosed in 2013, making the diagnosis public the following year. He is the Australian "face" of Fight MND, a research charity.

A friend of ours died of motor neurone disease in his mid 40’s some years back now but it’s a terrible disease which seems to strike right in your prime of Life ……I just don’t know how people cope with it. 
Rob Burrow seems to have raised an incredible amount of money to support the charity and research etc 

Hopefully something amazing may come out of the money he raised which will help others in the future.
