“At his peak Danny Brough was the most talented player in the British game” – How social media reacted to Danny Brough’s retirement

Sadly, yesterday marked the end of Danny Brough’s career as he announced his retirement following medical advice. A former Man of Steel winner, Brough was one of the best players to grace Super League and was at times unplayable. Following the announcement, Twitter was flooded with people wishing the scrum-half all the best, so let’s look at the best responses.

Almost everyone noted the quality of Brough especially his masterful kicking game, as they remembered how he tormented their teams in his hay day.

One claimed that he was perhaps the most accurate kicker the game has ever seen.

Meanwhile, fans from all over the country, even those from rival teams, felt compelled to wish him well.

One noted how special his character always was.

Bradford fans meanwhile expressed their commitment to supporting him beyond the field and into the next stage of his life.

One fan found the perfect way to describe the Scotsman who led his national team to their most famous result against New Zealand five years ago.

Other fans found it hard to forgive him for the way he tore their teams apart in big games whilst others wished he’d have played for their club.

Some worried how Bradford would cope in his absence. They’re hoping Dec Patton can fill the void he’s left.
