I wouldn't rate him so highly.

But it was The One Show which replaced Rob Burrow on BBC2.   Why, I've no idea.   If you wanted to watch Boris babble on, you could just tune in to BBC News.   It's like the BBC haven't got enough programmes to fill up their channels so they broadcast the same thing on more than one channel.

That was some programme.

What a horrible, awful illness.

What a man Rob Burrow is and what a wonderful family he has.

I’m in pieces after that.

That was some programme and Sally Nugent is really sincere but the heroes in this are Rob and his family.

Well done Rob, I feel lucky to have seen you play. A truly great brave hero

Horrible and inspirational. So so sad to see how quickly it’s gripped him but to see the love people have for him and the attitude he’s tackling it with uplifted my spirits watching it. I just wish Covid would do one so the game can get on with kicking fundraising in to gear and help raise awareness of the disease.

Shocking progress by the disease.  Am disgusted and angry at the whole thing. Punching someone would make me feel better but it doesn't work like that.

Hopefully the kids are too young to be 'damaged' by this. How does his wife get through the day, the hour, the minute......?

It’s devastating to see a great rugby player, but more importantly, a loving family man, suffering from this horrible disease. Please let there be a cure.

I watched it when I got home from work last night and it was so sad to see how much he has deteriorated. It’s scary to see how many ex pro football and rugby players have been diagnosed with this condition over the past decade.

To see him as a kid turning out for Fev Lions, littlest kid on the park, but so game.  And he took that with him into his professional career.  What a shame to see such a spark dimmed.

Incredible viewing figures:

 

The documentary was up against live SL coverage on Sky, so I'd assume the catch-up figures should look good in the next few weeks.

The repeat is at 1:15pm on Saturday, just before the Cup Final coverage starts, which can't hurt the numbers either.

Cant bring myself to watch it , just devastating for his friends , family and his supporters . Im not sure a player was so liked and admired in his playing days by the opposing fans as Rob; im been a coward by not watching it I know but i have tears in my eyes everytime I think about this great pocket rocket of man .

I kept putting off watching it. Just watched it. Totally gutting. It seems to be taking him so fast.

 

I don't think I'll be able to watch anymore programs about him.  I want to remember him like this.

I would have loved it if one of those embroidered Wigan shirts had read "Rob Burrow - Bloody Nuisance", because of all the times he darted, skipped and sprinted through our defence. And I think Rob would have got a laugh out of that too.

It took me three days to work up the courage to watch it, which I did last night. They are a remarkable family and you have to say Sally Nugent is quite magnificent too. But yes, I was choked up.

I can confirm 30+ less sales for Scotland vs Italy at Workington, after this afternoons test purchase for the Tonga match, £7.50 is extremely reasonable, however a £2.50 'delivery' fee for a walk in purchase is beyond taking the mickey, good luck with that, it's cheaper on the telly.

This is the same with me, I'm gonna watch it for the first time before the cup final today but haven't been brave enough to watch yet.
