Comedy legend Ricky Gervais rips into Stevie Ward in support of Rob Burrow

Comedy legend Ricky Gervais is the latest person to show his support for Rob Burrow – in his own hilarious way.

Leeds captain Stevie Ward got in touch with Gervais, who in turn sent back a video taking aim at Ward and the sport of rugby league itself.

The clip, which Ward posted on his own social media, has been watched over half a million times.
