Kevin Sinfield documentary, “Going the Extra Mile”, to be aired on BBC Two

Kevin Sinfield had endeared himself to every rugby league fan and could potentially do the same for rugby union with his new job as Head of Defence at the English rugby union setup.

As amazing as he was in the game, both as a player and a coach, it’s his attitude and inspiration as a friend and as a team mate that is what most people admire the former Rhinos’ star for.

Since former teammate and best mate, Rob Burrow, announced his diagnosis of Motor Neurone Disease, something that he did on national television with Sinfield alongside him, the pair have been almost inseparable.

Sinfield has fundraised through some incredibly physical challenges including his most recent ‘Seven in Seven’ ultra marathon challenge, whilst Burrow has helped hold the government to account and spread awareness of the condition.

The premiere for Sinfield’s documentary that details his immense ‘Seven in Seven’ challenge was last night in Leeds and went down a storm, as reported here.

However there’s going to be another documentary that will be aired on primetime television with ‘Kevin Sinfield: Going the Extra Mile’ set to screen on Friday 3rd February at 7pm on BBC Two.

That will receive huge viewing figures as it’s placed during one of the busiest slots for TV watchers and the documentary will show the amazing efforts of Sinfield in aid of best mate Burrow.

BBC Breakfast, who have been brilliant in offering the pair a platform, tweeted the news earlier today.

The pair are also scheduled to compete in the Leeds marathon which has been named in honour of Rob, with Sinfield set to push Burrow around the course in another feat of unbelievable effort to raise money to fight MND.
