    Great bloke & courageous family.

    He never allowed others to define what he could achieve - a priceless ability !

    Incredible that in the past 5 years he has raised nearly £20million to fight MND & helped into building a new care centre for MND patients👏

    His resilience with the ability to bounce back despite his illness within substantial adversity
    was a "True Inspiration".

    RIP

    Horrible illness. Rob was so strong. I know I couldn't have done what he did. Incredible sadness but that was no way to live. So cruel.
    God bless him and his Mrs and kids.

    RIP Rob and my thoughts are with his family.

    Itís a truly horrible disease and I hope his charitable efforts have helped to push the research forward so that others can avoid the suffering Rob and his family experienced.

    The effect & changes to his body in just a few years were heart breaking, yet he battled on regardless. Thoughts go to his family, massive respect to Kevin S as well.

    I wish a few more politicians had Sir Kevís moral code and compass.

    Some really good programmes on tv last night playing tribute and the MND centre now starting to be built will be an incredible legacy.

    Never been a Rugby fan but this guy was something else, and after his diagnosis proved to be an inspiration to so many. His wife Lindsey and girls Maya and Macey are truly awsome in their dedication and spirit - also inspirational to so many
    RIP Rob
