Description

Nice insight into Sir Kev's life, not just the playing career but his life outside of rugby including his charity work, friendships, and family.

Both played together for the dominant Leeds Rhino rugby league team in the first 15 years or so of this century. A world class rugby league player, an excellent leader, a fabulous coach but all in all the best of friends.Doubtless he feels that he has yet to achieve much in union, notwithstanding his part as defence coach in Leicester’s Premiership title and rapid promotion to the England ranks. The fear that rugby could one day cease altogether as a contact sport has not been expressed before by someone of Sinfield’s standing. It’s a fabulous read which gives you a look into the world of the Rugby League and what it can do and does for their friend and colleague .

Five stars awarded, not for the writing style and structure (which was muddled in places) but for the sheer bloody brilliance of his friendship and support for Rob and friendship to the other MND-suffering rugby colleagues. Thank you for donating to this challenge and for your continued support in raising even more to help our cause - we are keen to see the donations and where they end up. The weather was horrendous, but we met some lovely people on the way and we’re ready to go again today. With your help, we can build a state-of-the-art MND Care Centre, to give people with MND and their families the best possible care and support.We know the human body can adapt remarkably to physical stress but these runs were gobsmacking distances, bonkers challenges to normal folk. Kevin is a selfless human who has found a new why and that is in the form of Rob Burrow and the MND community (as well as being a proud son, father, friend and husband).

He was to become a league legend: 521 games for Leeds Rhinos, a 13-year England career, 14 Great Britain caps, seven Grand Final wins, appearance and scoring records galore, runner-up to Andy Murray in the BBC Sports Personality of the Year awards, even the first RL player to appear on Desert Island Discs, when he chose a self-propelled treadmill as his luxury item. For a young player the question becomes: do you want to spend the best part of your twenties chasing a dream that could collapse at any moment? We support NHS staff to deliver the best care for over a million patients and their families each year. I was dependent on everyone playing well for me to get me where I wanted to go: the Lancashire starting side. He was awarded an OBE in January 2022 and given a special award at BBC Sports Personality of the Year 2022.The book equips readers with the tools and the mindset to embrace togetherness and to overcome their own challenges. But in recent years has shown heroism of a very different kind through his selfless and extraordinary fundraising for.

When Rob was diagnosed with Motor Neuron Disease in 2019 it soon became clear Kevin wasn't the type of friend who sat back and did nothing. We lost one of our best friends just 2 years after her diagnosis, she was only 38 with a 4 year old daughter. Kevin is going from strength to strength, this is just the start I’m sure there will be a follow up at some point.The Irish Motor Neurone Disease Association (IMNDA, CHY 8510) is the only organisation of its kind in the country. Although I don’t follow rugby, I found Kevin’s insights and explanations of his rugby career fascinating. Please Note: By their very nature, all signed books will have been handled several times before they get to you. As well as inspiring me to my next goal, it has also made me reassess my life, what is important and how good communication and teamwork is so important in all aspects of life.
