GOLDEN OLDIES BOOST LEEDS

Daily Mirror - - SPORT -

ROB BUR­ROW and Danny McGuire rolled back the years as they pre­pare to bring down the cur­tain on their Leeds ca­reers. The vet­er­ans have con­trib­uted as much as any­one to the Rhi­nos’ golden era since 2004. They will de­part Head­in­g­ley at the end of this sea­son and could yet bow out with an eighth Su­per League ti­tle.

Af­ter Liam Sut­cliffe (right) fin­ished strongly for the open­ing try, Bur­row and McGuire com­bined to dev­as­tat­ing ef­fect. Bur­row broke through the Sal­ford de­fence and sent the sup­port­ing McGuire scam­per­ing un­der the posts.

It was a try that typ­i­fied their tal­ents as the Rhi­nos move omi­nously to­wards their home play-off semi-fi­nal. With Sal­ford hav­ing thrown in the towel on their play-off bid, Tom Briscoe crossed for a third Leeds try.

Af­ter the break, Matt Par­cell grabbed a brace with fur­ther scores from Adam Cuth­bert­son, An­thony Mul­lally and Brett Fer­res.
