McGuire calls on vocal Leeds support to turn-out at the Keepmoat Stadium
After their superb support spurred Leeds Rhinos to a third consecutive Grand Final victory, Danny McGuire has urged the Headingley Carnegie faithful to show similar support for England in the Gillette Four Nations, starting next Friday against France.
At Saturday’s Grand Final Leeds Rhinos fans outnumbered St Helens fans by nearly two to one and McGuire believes that such support could be instrumental in helping England get a good start in the Gillette Four Nations next Friday at Doncaster’s Keepmoat Stadium.
“Doncaster is not that far away from Leeds so hopefully the Rhinos fans will travel down in big numbers,” said McGuire
“Rhinos fans follow us all over the place and give us absolutely brilliant support. Hopefully they can come and do that when we’re playing for England too. I know it would give all the boys a big lift to see those supporters there.”
With five Leeds Rhinos players in Tony Smith’s 24 man England squad, next Friday’s game against France will be the first time for Rhinos fans to see some of their Grand Final heroes back in action. And after playing a key role in securing the Rhinos a historic third back-to-back engage Super League title, McGuire cannot wait for the Gillette Four Nations to begin to help erase memories of last year’s trip to Australia.
McGuire added: “The Gillette Four Nations is a good chance to put the World Cup behind us and get another crack at Australia and New Zealand, but we know we’ve got a very difficult French side to face first.
“I’ve not played at Doncaster but I’ve been there to watch a couple of games. It’s a fantastic stadium and I’m sure the atmosphere will be tremendous on the night.”
