On this day in 1966 Marc Glanville was born. Marc still holds a special place in the memories of Leeds fans. Having joined Leeds in November 1997 he became an integral part of the 1998 and 1999 sides that reached the Grand Final and then won the Challenge Cup. Marc was a consummate professional who always gave 100% on the field despite extreme pain through injuries sustained from over 12 years in the front lines of Australian rugby league. He never seemed to waste an ounce of energy, running direct lines and always knew where his man was going to run to put in a crunching tackle. He announced at the start of his second season that he would be going home at the end of the season and finished off with 52 appearances scoring 5 tries. Marc joined the Rhinos from Newcastle Knights where he won the Australian grand Final in 1997. He played 188 games for the Knights and was known to everyone as "MG". He signed for the Knights from St George, where he played his early career. He represented NSW Country on three occasions and upon returning to Australia took up his previous occupation with his own real estate business. He remains involved in rugby league with the Newcastle Knights.
