McGuire aiming for three in a row

Forward Josh McGuire and his Brisbane team are targeting three consecuive victories in the World Club Series in the past three years.

The Broncos meet Warrington at the Halliwell Jones Stadium tonight. In 2015 and 2016 they have secured victories over Wigan.

McGuire has played in all three wins in England.

“It’ll be a great opportunity for us, we’ve played Wigan the last couple of years but a change of scene and a change of club is exciting for us,” he told Love Rugby League.

“I know that the younger guys that haven’t been over here before, they’re excited about being here and playing some football.”

McGuire believes the match is an important part of Brisbane’s preparations for the start of the NRL season.

“It’s always important to have a good game of football and make sure we go into the season with a little bit of success up our sleeves,” he admitted.

“But I think the key for us is that we just want to make sure we play at a standard that we’ve been training at and perform at a high level.

“For us we’ve got some young guys stepping in, which is a good opportunity this week, and we’re looking forward to seeing how those guys go as well.”

McGuire said he enjoys coming to England and being part of the World Club Series.

“I love it mate,” he said.

“I always enjoy coming with the team and bonding and playing footy somewhere different, which is always nice and seeing the world.”

Former Warrington player and current Brisbane prop Mitchell Dodds has been giving his new teammates some tips on the Wolves. Dodds spent the 2016 season with Warrington before returning to the Broncos.

“He just said it’s a football crazy town that loves their footy and they enjoy it, and it’s a wonderful club to be a part of and he really enjoyed his time here,” McGuire said.

“Obviously he had the leg break but he’s back training with us at the moment, which is good for the club to have such a good player around the club.

Every team does some video and we watched them against Catalans and they were unlucky with the loss.

“But they’re a very classy team and we’re excited about playing them.”
