Rob Burrows’ daughters to lead Leeds Rhinos out at the Magic Weekend

Rob Burrow is a Leeds Rhinos legend.

The diminutive halfback won eight Grand Finals with the club from 2004 to 2017 losing just one in 2005. He also won back-to-back Challenge Cups with Leeds in 2014 and 2015 as well as three World Club Challenges.

The England and Great Britain international scored in every major final going crossing in the 2005 World Club Challenge win over Canterbury, scoring in the historic 50-0 Challenge Cup Final win over Hull KR in 2015 and who could forget his amazing try against St Helens in the 2011 Grand Final coupled with a scintillating assist for Ryan Hall which saw Leeds crowned as Champions and Burrow pick up a second Harry Sunderland Award.

Burrow has done so much for the club and Leeds have been striving to return the favour to their hall of famer especially since he was diagnosed with Motor Neurone Disease in December 2019.

Leeds have done plenty to raise money and awareness for the disease lately releasing a special shirt for the Magic Weekend inspired Burrow and designed by his children Macy, Maya and Jackson.

The Rhinos have now confirmed that Burrow’s eldest children Macy and Maya will lead the Rhinos out onto the field against the Castleford Tigers who are also set to wear a Burrow inspired jersey.

It should be a great game and will help raise more awareness of MND whilst some shirt sale profits will go towards MND charities.
