'Occasionally in life you come across a person who is talented yet humble, brave but not foolish, inspirational and unaware of his own impact. Rob Burrow is such a man - a pocket rocket of a player and a giant of a character. It has been a privilege to watch him play and to know him off the pitch. He is one in a million.' - Clare Balding
