Fan letter urges RFL to have Rob Burrow and Mose Masoe present the Challenge Cup trophy

Warrington fan Mark Graham has sent a letter to the RFL in a bid to have rugby league heroes Rob Burrow and Mose Masoe present the Challenge Cup trophy to the winning captain at Wembley.

Burrow was diagnosed with motor neurone disease (MND) last December but has since shown incredible courage, raising thousands to show more awareness of the condition.

Meanwhile Masoe suffered a devastating injury in a pre-season game at the start of 2020 that left him paralysed from the shoulders down. He has also shown great bravery and recently took his first steps for eight months.

Their efforts have united the rugby league family and the aforementioned Graham believes it is a great opportunity to have both players present the most prestigious trophy in the sport later this month.

His letter to the RFL reads: “After two thrilling semi-finals and in this most difficult year when our great sport has rallied around its own, I would like (as a Warrington fan) to propose that the Challenge Cup is presented to the winning captain on 17th October by Rob Burrow and Mose Masoe.

“There’s not a sport fan in the country who hasn’t been touched by their relative battles but more than that by the dignified and humble ways they have faced their challenges.

“I truly believe that it would be a right and fitting way to award the Challenge Cup and to recognise these two inspirational young men.”
