PHOENIX SPORT – 8TH JUNE 2024

Two big Rugby finals took place this week, as both of the sport’s codes paid an emotional tribute to Rugby League legend Rob Burrow, the former Leeds Rhinos, England and Great Britain player who died last week after suffering from Motor Neurone Disease.

Burrow’s efforts to raise money for research into and awareness of the condition rightly earned him a great deal of admiration, and in honour of his old number seven shirt the Rugby League Challenge Cup Final at Wembley kicked off at 3.07pm, seven minutes later than originally planned.

The final saw Wigan Warriors win the trophy, as they beat Warrington Wolves by 18 points to 8.

In Rugby Union’s English Premiership Final, Northampton Saints clinched their first league title in a decade as they beat Bath 25-21 at Twickenham.

And in Tennis, world number one Iga Swiatek of Poland won the Women’s Singles title at the French Open, after beating her Italian opponent Jasmine Paolini in straight sets.
