Rob Burrow to present man of the match award at Super League Grand Final

ROB Burrow will light up Super League’s Grand Final once again after being chosen to present the Harry Sunderland Trophy.

The Leeds Rhinos legend, a two-time winner of the prize for man of the match in the title decider, will be at Old Trafford on Saturday, October 9.

After winning the Grand Final on an astonishing eight occasions, just having Burrow there will be special as he lives with motor neurone disease.

And after last night’s 8-0 win at Wigan, the club where he is a legend still has a chance of making the showpiece.

Burrow said: “It is a complete privilege and honour to be asked to present the Harry Sunderland trophy at such a huge game.

“To have won it myself twice before, I know just how special that feeling is. To be able to share the moment with that given player will be very humbling.

“I have had some amazing nights from this great sport, and this will rank up there with my best.

“To whomever wins the award, I just know it will be a special time and I am so grateful to have been asked to present this award.”

Burrow won the Harry Sunderland Trophy, named after a rugby league administrator, in 2007 and 2011.

Such was his impact in 2011, when he scored a try in Leeds’ 32-16 win over St Helens, he became the first player to unanimously win it, receiving all 37 votes.
