Eorl Crabtree in brilliant move

When times are tough, you can always seem to count on those involved with rugby league to stick their noses out and help those less fortunate.

As the sport’s fraternity has seen with the fundraising surrounding Rob Burrow and the MND Association and Research programs, there is kindness in abundance in rugby league.

And, there was yet another superb example of that kindness shining through when current Huddersfield Giants club ambassador Eorl Crabtree made his own brilliant contribution to society.

For the former England international, that involved helping to put up a family who had their home destroyed by Storm Arwen that hit the UK earlier in the week.

Crabtree tweeted: “The last 72 hours have been absolutely mental as we helped relocate a family who had their house destroyed by storm Arwen, Our house in Amble was due some improvements but we have put it on hold to give them a home, We also included some of our favourite pieces @estate8ltd

The 39-year-old spent his entire career playing for the Giants, which amounted to a grand total of 17 seasons with over 400 appearances under his belt.

Crabtree also earned 14 caps for England and hung up his boots at the end of the 2016 Super League season.
