Utterly, utterly heart-breaking that, but what amazing people (and their families) for trying to raise awareness.

Very tough watch. To me it looks like Stephen is struggling more with the mental side than the other two. Hear a lot about Rob Burrow and the amazing work he and his former teammates have done this side of the Pennines but I think Stephen has struggled more with putting himself out there than the others. Fair play. Horrible disease.

So, so sad. MND must be one of the cruelest diseases there is surely? I used to teach a couple of girls whose dad was diagnosed, suffered and died from it. It’s just heartbreaking. What a moving interview. :cry:

So tragic. Still including them in my prayers.

Bloody hell. That was a tough watch. Especially when it focused on Rob Burrows kids. What a horrendous disease to live with, for sufferers and those close to them.

Possibly. He might just be having a bad day. I'm fairly certain that running into Rob Burrow is going to be a challenging sight given that it is likely a sign of things to come. Hopefully he can find some positives while fighting that dreadful condition.
