Rugby Union and League Unite To Pay Tribute To Rob Burrow CBE

English rugby union will unite with the Rugby Football League and pay tribute to Rob Burrow with a round of applause in the seventh minute of Saturday’s Gallagher Premiership final.

Premiership Rugby confirmed the tribute, which will take place during the sold-out Twickenham encounter between Northampton and Bath.

Burrow’s rugby league legacy will be the focal point of Saturday’s Challenge Cup final day at Wembley – the men’s showpiece kicks off at the same time as the Premiership final – with a series of tributes lined up in his honour.

The Leeds Rhinos great, who won the Challenge Cup twice during a glittering playing career, died at the age of 41 on Sunday, after a four-and-a-half year battle with Motor Neurone Disease.

As he said: ‘In a world full of adversity we must still dare to dream’.

We send our condolences to Rob’s family and friends.
