Leeds legend Rob Burrow’s autobiography “Too Many Reasons to Live” will be released on August 19, 2021.
The 38-year-old enjoyed an illustrious playing career, scoring 198 tries in 493 games for the Rhinos between 2001-17. He earned 20 caps for Great Britain and England.
But just two years after he retired from the game, Burrow was diagnosed with motor neurone disease in 2019.

The Yorkshireman has since worked to raise awareness of the disease and helped raise millions for MND Association.
On his autobiography, Burrow said: “I am really excited for my story to be told as it is a true underdog story.
“Against all odds I became successful in a sport played by the biggest of men.
“The adversity gave me a fighting chance as I now face an impossible opponent, and my fight to stay alive!’”
