McGuire happy with iPitch

Danny McGuire enjoyed the experience of playing on Widnes’ groundbreaking iPitch, as Leeds defeated the Vikings 44-16 on Sunday.

The iPitch, a first for Super League, has come under criticism this season, but the Rhinos stand-off was impressed.

He told the club’s official website: “I enjoyed playing on the I Pitch. It was a really true surface so that made things better for us because we were able to play on top of the ground and that suited our style of playing. 

“I have got a few grazes but nothing out of the ordinary. There was a lot of dropped ball in the second half but I don’t think that was the pitch, we just got a bit over excited with so much ball.”

Only forward Ian Kirke wore “tights” on the surface, which was slated by Wakefield full-back Richie Mathers following the Wildcats’ opening day victory at the Stobart Stadium.
