Rob you showed them both on the pitch and off the pitch what a giant of a man you were. Humble to the very end but have left a legacy that will live on for ever. Rob you gave me such pleasure watching you play rugby on the pitch and off the pitch an inspiration to fulfill each day and dream big. Rob rest now your work is done and thank you with all my heart for sharing your life with the world xxx

I watched you play against Castleford many a time.. Your career in Rugby League was simply incredible and your attitude in fighting MND was beyond inspirational. You have left behind a legacy your family can be extremely proud of. Yorkshire and the bigger world have lost a true legend, a warrior.. Rest in peace Rob, God bless.

I have watched rugby league for over 60 years and seen many greats over that time. The better players stick in the mind and up there with the best is Rob Burrow. Small in stature but bursting with talent, courage, speed and balance he left many a player in his wake. One of the all time greats and a player who was respected across the game. Sadly missed and heartfelt condolences to his wife and children. Rest easy Rob.
