Leeds Rhinos legends Kevin Sinfield, Jamie Jones-Buchanan, Jamie Peacock and Rob Burrow will take to the field at Emerald Headingley just one last time this Sunday in the closing stages of the testimonial game against Bradford Bulls, kick off 3pm.
All four have been confirmed to feature in the match, which is a joint fundraiser for Jamie Jones-Buchanan and Rob Burrow, following the announcement that Burrow has been diagnosed with Motor Neurone Disease.
Commenting on the news, Foundation trustee Jamie Jones-Buchanan said, “I have always talked about the deep sadness that I had because I was unable, through injury, to play in Kev’s final game and this is a wonderful gesture by him in support of Rob Burrow. I hope we can sell out Emerald Headingley on Sunday and make it a day to remember.”
Kevin Sinfield added, “I swore that I would never play a game of rugby again after I retired, but how can I say no to two of my greatest friends?
“It will be special to walk from the field one last time together and for so many people to come out and support Rob and Jamie makes it even more special.”
