Leeds Rhinos fans are invited to wear their special Rob Burrow 2022 shirts when the Rhinos go live on Sky Sports for the clash with Huddersfield Giants this Wednesday.
The special fundraising kit has proven a huge hit with supporters and the Rhinos will wear the kit again on Wednesday for their Family Night clash with the Giants. There are a limited number of shirts still available with £10 from each sale going to good causes to support the MND community.
Leeds Rhinos and Oxen are proud to announce the donation of over £35,000 so far which will be split between the MND Association and the Leeds Hospitals Charity as part of an appeal for the construction of the Rob Burrow Center for MND .
Rhinos kit partner Oxen has donated over £85,000 to MND since last year. This year’s vital funds come from purchases and support received for this year’s Magic Weekend shirt which was worn at St James Park as the Rhinos secured an emphatic victory over the Castleford Tigers.
The team will now look to take to the pitch once more in the striking yellow and blue kit as we host Huddersfield Giants on Wednesday August 24 at 8pm. We encourage fans to support the team once again by buying your tickets at tickets.therhinos.co.uk, with Magic Weekend shirts also still available online by clicking here and in our Headingley Stadium Stores.
After revealing the special shirt, the Rhinos put on an impressive display at St James with fans showing their support for the club and Rob Burrow. Since then, the terraces at Headingley have been lit up with the Burrow shirt on game night and the Rhinos are encouraging everyone to wear theirs on Wednesday to show the incredible support in front of the Sky Sports cameras.
Designed by Rob’s three children, Macy, Maya and Jackson, the t-shirt features loads of little touches, including a small “stickman” caricature of his dad by Jackson, 3, in the center of the t-shirt’s chest .
The design features a bold blue 7 across the chest with a texture that mimics the pencil coloring of the children’s original drawing. There are quotes in the children’s writing all around the shirt showing their pride in their father and their support for others affected by MND.
Adult shirts are in sizes S to 6XL with women’s shirts available in sizes 8 to 18, both priced at £49.99. Junior shirts cost £39.99 in sizes 6-14 with toddler kits, 0-4, priced at £39.99. The shorts are available in adult sizes (S-3XL) for £25.99, while junior shorts (6-14) cost £22.99. All replica socks are £10. Click here to buy now.
