No, currently there's no cure I think current prognosis for MND is about 2-3 years, heartbreaking.

I varies hugely. Stephen Hawking lived with it for decades and still did some of his best work with it.

It's still a desperately cruel thing though

would be great if big sam pulled on a bulls jersey and turned out one last time for the game on the 12th ( if circumstances were to allow of course) 

did the bloke who invented the phrase "one hit wonder" invent anything else?

Truly awful disease that you wouldn't wish on your worst enemy. I saw him last week and realised something was wrong. Research ongoing into its causes and treatment with some of the latest also reported on the BBC website https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/health-50821327

Hopefully he will receive the best care and treatment available.

Always remember when we had a bet on the match first try scorer. I always backed Karl Pryce and Vainikolo. Rob Burrow scored first n my dad had backed him. Traitor. Tells you about the lad when a Leeds Bradford match has a 50 year Bradford fan backing a Leeds player to score first!

His attitude has always been first rate. No arrogance like some successful players have.

I bet he fights the ###### with integrity. Good luck.

Terrible news for Rob and his family.

Rob is one of, if not the toughest player I've had the pleasure to watch. To have the mental as well as physical ability and courage to take on, and be better than much bigger opponents are attributes he has in abundance, I hope they assist his battles ahead. I really do wish him all the best.

Terrible news. My heart goes out to him and his family.

As reflected on here he was one of those players who everyone, whatever club admired. He took all the knocks and just kept going and beating many teams on his own. Pound for pound he must rank as one of the toughest players in SL 

Good luck and very best wishes to him

I think that interview brought it home even more. Cannot even begin to think how hard that must have been for him. Read an interview with him in The Guardian talking about how he doesn't fear death but his main thought is about missing out on his children growing up.

Hard to describe how heart breaking that feeling must be. I don't know him beyond being a rugby player and it's emotional. Hope he and his family get all the support they need.

Absolutely stunned when I heard this.

There are no words.

Sums it up mate.

That interview with Tania Arnold was very difficult to watch but what a courageous bloke Rob Burrow is.

The very best of luck to him with his fight with this disease, let's hope he really gives it a kicking and defies the odds being thrown about.

Jake Connor : "I don't know, to be honest I haven't spoken to him."

It has all been said already. I just agree with the general sentiment. A fine player and a likeable and positive character.

I first met Rob right at the start of his career. Only being 8year old, and playing for a local club in Leeds, he instantly became my guy on the field and the one I was always trying to emulate. 

Always looked up to him from then until now. His spirit on the field was immense. It motivated people in the right way. Everyone respected him. Opposition and all. 

Well you can be sure as hell the RL family will respect him now more than ever before by supporting him through this... Look at the outpouring of love and respect today. Phenomenal. The humble response was heartbreaking. 

Absolutely gutted for him and his young family. Absolutely gutted.
