The Futures So Bright....
Posted by southstander on June 19 2008 - 09:59:45

Future's Safe

Back in 1989, when Rob Burrow and Danny McGuire were just seven years old, Timbuk 3 wrote 'The Future's So Bright, I Gotta Wear Shades'. Nineteen years later and fantastic news emerging from Headingley means that the Wisconsin duo's words are mightily prophetic of the mood amongst Rhinos supporters.

Rob and Danny, the finest half-back combination in Superleague, and possibly the World, have both signed massive five year extensions to their deals which wil keep them at HQ until the end of the 2013 season, Superleague XVIII.

All Leeds Rhinos supporters will be delighted at todays news, which quashes recent speculation about Danny McGuires imminent departure. Both players have shown their support for the coach and club and pledged their futures to the club with which they have tasted much recent success. In securing the services of both players until they make their thirties, Gary Hetherington has secured the continued success of the club by ensuring that the play-making heart of the side stays intact.

This new deal makes both players career Rhinos, a rare commodity in a time of increased financial deals and attempts to buy success by owners and coaches. Danny and Rob will undoubtedly have been rewarded for their loyalty, but I'd bet that they had been tempted by more personally lucrative offers from elsewhere.

Both players debuted in 2001 and have tasted two Grand Final victories and two World Club Championships. The new deal will take both players well through their 2011 testimonial seasons and ensure that both continue to write their names into the Rhinos record books, and the hearts of the SouthStanders.

Both players are now hitting their prime and have dedicated what will hopefully be the most productive periods of their life to the top side in the country. Under Gary Hetherington and currently Brian McClennan Headingley seems to be the place that players want to stay and play their rugby. The recent re-signing of Brent Webb, and the continuing dedication of the likes of Sinfield, Diskin, Jones-Buchanan, Bailey and Scruton shows that the Rhinos really can be a side for life.

Now, where did I put those shades?
