Rhinos captain calls for his side to keep going

Four Super League players banned

Leeds Rhinos captain Danny McGuire wants his side to keep their foot on the gas as they move towards the Super 8s.

After their convincing victory over Salford Red Devils last time out, McGuire – who has since confirmed he is leaving the Rhinos at the end of the season – has asked for his team to keep working hard for each other ahead of some tough fixtures.

McGuire’s future away from Leeds is still up in the air with a number of teams chasing his signature but the focus right now for the half-back is fully with the West Yorkshire club.

“We are in a good place at the minute and everybody’s enjoying what we’re doing,” he told the Yorkshire Evening Post.

“We’ve got a tough game against Hull, but at this stage of the season it’s about picking up the wins and keeping ticking over and trying to improve and working hard for each other.

“I think we are ticking all those boxes. We need to keep going.”

McGuire also casted his eye over the Super 8s and the competitiveness of the division at the moment.

With every team looking for a place in the top four, Leeds need to keep their eye on the ball and McGuire is determined his side do that.

“The way the league is shaping up there’s going to be some interesting games in the Super-8s,” said McGuire.

“There’s no gimmie games and sixth, seventh and eighth will be fighting for fourth spot so every game’s going to be important now, which is what the competition wants.”
