As we count down to the World Club Challenge against Melbourne Storm on Friday 16th February, we are counting down each day with 50 of the most memorable moments for the club against Australian sides down the years from Kangaroos to Cowboys.

33. Danny McGuire scores classic try in Manly defeat

The Rhinos were aiming to become the first team to defend the world title when they welcomed Manly Sea Eagles to Elland Road in 2009 but ultimately a first half blitz by the Australians proved to much to overcome in a 28-20 loss.

However, the Rhinos did score the best try of the game with a spectacular finish by Danny McGuire set up by a rampaging run by Keith Senior from 60 metres out.

It’s not  too late to book your trip to Melbourne with Glory Days
