Hull KR supporters will meet two of the club’s former greats at the first heritage event of 2016.

Alan Burwell and Mike Smith will share stories from their careers and answer questions from the audience at the KC Lightstream Stadium on January 27.

Burwell made over 200 appearances for the Robins during the 60s and 70s, scoring more than 100 tries. The versatile three-quarter also represented Great Britain.

Smith achieved cult status among the Red Army, making close to 500 appearances for the club from the 70s to the 90s. He was a talented centre or stand-off, perhaps best known for his role in the famous side of the 80s.

The event will be held in the Legends Lounge from 7pm. Admission is free, so organisers are expecting a big turnout.

Heritage events began last year, giving Hull KR fans the chance to celebrate the club’s rich history.
