Danny, who made his debut against Salford back in July 2001, has fast established himself as the crowds favourite at Headingley. An incredible footballing brain, couple with a great turn of speed and an ability to evade the tackle has led to people likening his playing style to past Headingley legends like Gary Schofield and Iestyn Harris.|
With seventy tries in fifty-eight starts and thirty-one substitute appearances, the Headingley try machine earned himself a call up to the GB squad for the tri-nations, and despite getting little game time from the anti-Leeds GB coach Brian Noble, he acquitted himself well on the international stage.
Now signed until at least the end of the Superleague Fourteen, he will undoubtedly continue to enthrall the SouthStand faithful with his exciting play and ability to score tries from anywhere on the park.
I'm delighted that Danny has chosen to stay at Leeds, rather than have his head turned by the bright lights of down under or the 'kick and clap' brigade. He is the player that Tony Smith will continue to build his squad around, and in whom GB fans should place their trust as future stand-off.
Danny McGuire....Champion of the World!
