Gutted. Not a Rugby league follower, but this man was a legend.
Cruelly taken by motor neurone disease
RIP Rob.
 
Very sad. He stayed smiling to the end.

RIP
 
Not a Rugby fan, but that is so young and very sad - He was on the breakfast TV the other day making a surprise visit to a junior school with his friend. .... RIP Rob
 
Rob's best mate Kevin Sinfield will be devastated.
He was on Breakfast TV the other morning saying how another Christmas event for Rob is being planned for early December.
I believe he has helped raise over £15m for MND. No wonder he got an OBE for his efforts.

These incredibly sad cases also serve to remind us of the now inescapable connection between the early onset of devastating neurological conditions such as MND,PARKINSONS,ALZHEIMERS and heavy body/head contact sports. A brave man RIP he paid too heavy a price for the sport.:(
 
Apparently, according to google, , although MND is not a particularly common disease, international rugby players were 15 times more likely to develop MND than the general population. Hmmm.

And then there was Doddie Weir - a local lad - who died 18 months ago.

There is, indeed, a definite link.
 
It's the wrong people who get taken first. RIP Rob

Ain't that the truth . . . .it's strange how our category one jails stay well populated whilst good people, like Rob, are taken at such a young age
