Brothers in arms

Why we need your help

Leeds Rhinos have unveiled plans for a unique statue to celebrate two of the club’s greatest ever servants but more importantly the camaraderie, bond and love between a generation of players at the club.

The statue will feature legendary captain Kevin Sinfield embracing team mate Rob Burrow. The pair played in twelve winning Finals together during a glorious period in the club’s history but the moment chosen does not feature a trophy or even a rugby ball. Instead, it is from the historic fundraising match held at Emerald Headingley in January 2020, just weeks after Burrow had been diagnosed with motor neurone disease. The image shows two friends and team mates supporting each other in the toughest moment and is a tribute to the golden generation of players who grew up together and made history together on the field but also forged bonds that will last a lifetime.

The plan for the Sinfield and Burrow statue is for it to sit in the corner of the stadium looking down onto the hallowed turf that both players graced. 

Sculptor Steve Winterburn, who created the John Holmes statue as well as the iconic Rugby League heroes statue at Wembley Stadium, has made preliminary models of the potential new statue although no commission has been placed as yet.

The club are aiming to the raise £100,000, the target needed to make the dream a reality.

It would be fabulous to see a statue of both of them representing their friendship in the ground. Both are inspirational to all.
