New Leeds deal for McGuire

Leeds stand-off Danny McGuire has signed a new deal which will keep him at Headingley until at least the end of 2015.

McGuire, 29, is a six-time Grand Final winner with the Rhinos, and the all-time leading try scorer in Super League history.

His previous deal was due to expire at the end of 2013, and he now celebrates the start of his testimonial year by signing a new deal.

He said: “I am really pleased to get the contract agreed and signed before the start of pre-season.

“Leeds is my club and I am proud to have played my entire career for the Rhinos. We have had some great times in recent years but when you look at the young guys who are coming into the team you can see that there are definitely more special moments to come.

“I can now fully focus on getting myself in the best possible shape for a massive season for the Rhinos and myself, with it being my testimonial year.”

McGuire has scored 222 goals in 296 appearances for the club since making his debut back in 2001, making him fifth in the all time list of try scorers for Leeds.

Rhinos head coach Brian McDermott said: “Danny is a unique talent and we are very privileged to have him play his entire career at Leeds Rhinos. We all have been guilty over the years of perhaps taking him for granted in terms of what he does for this team because he performs at such a high level every time he steps onto the field. 

“However, his value to this team is never underestimated and I am delighted he has agreed a contract extension.”
