Rhinos | Rob Burrow on his final career games

12th September 2017

Leeds star Rob Burrow is nearing the end of a star studded career with the Rhinos.

Burrow announced earlier in the season that this would be his last as a player before he joins the youth department at Headingley.  Should Leeds reach the Grand Final, then there are potentially four games remaining for the playmaker:

"When you think you have seven or eight games left you don't really think about it, but obviously it's four to go now, two league and then a semi it starts to hit home.

"I am excited for the last four, if it were the end of the season you would be excited for the last four games but the fact that it's the end of my career is a bit different.

"I am just taking it as though it is the end of the season rather than the end of a career."

Burrow insists he has no regrets about his decision to call time on his playing career:

"I am definitely happy.  It wasn't something I went into the season thinking about.  I am happy with the decision and I am looking forward to the next chapter.  I have a burning desire to finish on a high and I have a goal and four games to leave it all out on the pitch.

"We know if we perform well in the semi, and get to the Grand Final then there is no better place to get one win but I am sure the other clubs will have a lot to say about that."

Salford arrive at Headingley, having thrashed Huddersfield last weekend.  That was their first win in eight games but Burrow knows that the Red Devils will be a threat:

"Salford are a very good side with some quality players in there.  Teams enjoy coming to Headingley, they will see it as a place they can come and play well."

You can hear full match commentary of Leeds Rhinos v Salford Red Devils live on Radio Yorkshire from 7pm on Friday.
