- Leeds 54-0 Huddersfield
- Rhinos reignite playoff hopes as Rob Burrow watches on
The smile on Rob Burrow’s face with 10 minutes remaining said it better than anything else could. The legendary Leeds Rhinos scrum-half and his family have made no secret of their love for the club, the city of Leeds and the wider rugby league community given the way they have supported his fight against motor neurone disease over the last three years.
But on the night of the Rhinos’ annual MND awareness game, you suspected there was only one thing Burrow really wanted: to see his beloved club that he served with such pride put on a show. How they did that here against an admittedly hapless Huddersfield side to reignite their Super League playoff hopes, and how fitting it was a performance littered with the kind of free-flowing, entertaining play that made Burrow a rugby league superstar.
