Danny McGuire hailed as half-back set to make 400th Super League appearance
Hull Kingston Rovers half-back Danny McGuire has been hailed as an ‘upstanding man in society and a great representative of rugby league’ by head coach Tony Smith.
The playmaker, who will become the club’s new Head of Recruitment in 2020 upon retirement, is set to make his 400th Super League appearance when taking on his former Leeds Rhinos side on Friday night at Headingley (7.45pm).
Speaking to KRTV, Smith said: “It’s an incredible achievement for Danny – what a remarkable career he has had.
“He’s been a real pleasure to watch and I’ve had the pleasure of coaching him in three capacities now, as well as the England set-up. He’s been fantastic and he’s brought a lot of joy to a lot of people. He’s been a real credit to himself to whoever he’s represented, club or country.
“He should be really proud of his career that he’s had. He’s got a lovely young family who are really proud of him too and so they should be, because he’s an upstanding man in society, and a great representative of rugby league to our communities.”
