Rugby League legends Jamie Jones-Buchanan, Keith Senior and Joe Lydon took to the water to kick off the Row 4 Rob Challenge!
A group of former Rugby League Internationals and Super League stars will be joined by former members of the British Special Forces on this marathon canoeing challenge to raise funds to fight Motor Neurone Disease.
The group are paddling along the Leeds-Liverpool Canal, from Leeds Dock to the DW Stadium in Wigan. The four-day challenge begins on Monday 4th October, with their journey finishing when they hand over the official match ball for the 2021 BetFred Super League Grand Final on Thursday 7th October.
The group have been inspired by former Leeds Rhinos, England and Great Britain star Rob Burrow, who is fighting this terrible disease, and are also taking inspiration from the late Great Britain Rugby League international Mike Gregory, who passed away after a battle with MND. Mike was a teammate and contemporary of Joe Lydon.
