Super League's most prolific try scorer Danny McGuire has agreed a new two-year contract with Leeds that will keep him at Headingley Carnegie until at least the end of the 2017 season.

The news is a boost for the Super League leaders ahead of their trip to the south of France for Saturday's crucial Super 8s game against Catalan Dragons.

The 32-year-old half-back, who has been an integral part of the Rhinos' golden era, has been in the form of his life this year and added to his record tally of tries with the 256th of his career on his 400th appearance in his side's Challenge Cup win at Wembley a fortnight ago.

Leeds coach Brian McDermott said: "Danny has been in outstanding form for us this season and been a virtual ever present throughout the campaign.

"He is part of a special generation of players who have influenced the history of this club and I know he still has a key part to play in our future."

McGuire, who made his debut for Leeds in 2001 after coming through their junior system, said: "I am really pleased to have the new deal agreed.

"I never had any intention of going anywhere else, I'm a Leeds lad and I have played my entire career here but it is always nice to know the club sees you as part of their future too.

"We have had some incredible times over the last few years and this deal will mean I have been here for 20 years in total but it is the future that most excites me.

"We have got a fantastic group of young players that remind me a lot of the group of players I came through the academy with and, if I can help the team develop over the next few years, that is something I will very much enjoy."
