    Does anyone know if there is any research around impact sports and MND?

    It's like a sick joke. Not saying anyone is more or less deserving of it but someone like Rob Burrow. It just seems perverse. Just in the same way as Darbs. Fit as a fiddle and full of positivity. It makes a mockery of everything!

    It’s so sad Stork and very upsetting these sportsmen we all know and followed seem to suffer. Recently Phil Stephenson Keighley Cougars passed away after suffering. On Look North a lady neurologist mentioned a lot of tests have been carried out and drugs approved but no cure. Just slows the disease progression.
    Rob Burrow is a top sportsman and really given is all to the game .

    I think the inevitability of it all is the worse thing.

    Not many things these days have no known cure.

    Just awful. Hopefully this recent well publicised spate of high profile sports people like Rob and Darbs and the amazing Kevin Sinfield will help future sufferers of this horrendous condition

    Hard to watch the decline to such a cruel disease and hopefully the legacy that Rob and his family and associates provides much help in the future. RIP ROB

    So sad to hear this.

    Deepest condolences to his wife, children, rest of his family and friends.

    Just such a dreadfully sad decline of a once strong sportsman as he succumbed to the awful MND

    RIP Rob

    So sad, such a cruel illness. Small in stature but a giant of a man. From a Bradford Bulls fan but also a big Rob Burrow fan.

    RIP Rob Burrow

    Very good piece on BBC Breakfast this morning. Jamie Jones-Buchanan speaking very movingly and eloquently.

    So sad.
