Castleford Tigers launch brilliant tribute for Leeds Rhinos legend Rob Burrow with special MND kit

Supporting both the MND Association and Leeds Hospitals Charity appeal to build The Rob Burrow Centre for MND, Castleford Tigers have revealed their special shirt which will be worn for the Magic Weekend 2022 fixture against Leeds Rhinos at St James’ Park in Newcastle.

Designed and created in conjunction with Tigers’ official kit partners OXEN, the predominantly black kit features orange hoops, the Rob Burrow 7 signature fundraising logo, as well as all their club kit partners turning their branding orange in support of the MND Association, whose colours are orange.

Burrow was raised in Castleford but became one of the most successful rugby league players of all time at Leeds Rhinos. Since being diagnosed with motor neurone disease in December 2019, Rob and his family have been incredible ambassadors for the MND community.

From the sale of every Tigers Magic Weekend 2022 shirt sold, £5 will be donated to each of the MND Association and the Leeds Hospitals Charity appeal to build The Rob Burrow Centre for MND.

Meanwhile, the paperback version of Rob Burrow’s book Too Many Reasons To Live is now on sale.
