Leeds Rhinos legend Rob Burrow has confirmed his autobiography is available for pre-order and will be released in August.
In the book, Burrow goes through a memorable rugby league career where he defied the odds to become one of the greatest players of all time, to his current fight with MND.
Publishers Pan McMillan bought the world rights for the book, called Too Many Reasons To Live, from Featherstone Cairns for a six-figure sum.
Burrow said: “I am really excited for my story to be told as it is a true underdog story. Against all odds I became successful in a sport played by the biggest of men. The adversity gave me a fighting chance as I now face an impossible opponent, and my fight to stay alive!”
