MILESTONE MAN Danny McGuire is looking forward to more success with Leeds Rhinos.

McGuire – Super League’s all-time leading try scorer – made his 350th senior appearance for Rhinos in last week’s 43-12 win at Hull.

Only three players have scored more tries for Leeds than McGuire, who has won every domestic honour in the game, including six Grand Final successes.

But the 32-year-old pivot insisted: “You never get sick of it.

“I’m just pretty honoured to be playing with such a great club, such good players, team-mates and friends.

“I class myself as lucky and hopefully there’s a few more games in me yet.”

McGuire added: “Just enjoying it is the key. If you’re doing that you want to keep improving and there’s pressure on from your coach and team-mates to play well. There’s people underneath, too, like Sutty (Liam Sutcliffe), who push you to play well and I just want to do my bit for the team.”

Leeds’ 100 per cent start to the season will face its biggest test so far when they visit Warrington Wolves on Friday.

“It’s another tough one,” admitted McGuire, who has scored five tries in Rhinos’ opening four matches.

“They are probably a bit up and down currently, but it’s always hard there and we’ve not got the best record at that ground.

“It’s another big challenge so we’ll lick our wounds, rest up and get ready for another big week.”
