Walking up the Headingley on a glorious Easter Monday, is one of my favorite places to be. With the thoughts that Danny McGuire may be making a comeback after 7 months, just gave us a skip in our step. It felt like it would give the team such a lift & it really did, as soon as his name was mentioned in the line up, everyone seemed so excited.
I couldn’t help but think back to that day where he injured his knee & Phil Clarke from the Sky Sports team made the stupid comments about him maybe deserving his injury due to him cheating, then I saw a tweet from someone I follow which said ‘Loving that the Rugby League Gods timed Danny McGuire’s ‘resurrection’ for Easter weekend. Spooky’, which just made me chuckle.
The game itself was exciting for the most part, with some good plays from both sides. Leeds enjoyed most of the possession, however, there was a noticeable tiredness towards the end of the game, which was inevitable due to 2 games in 5 days. We couldn’t have asked for anymore from the lads, 2 wins in 2 over the Easter weekend, now to Castleford, which will be tough. Another local derby against a team that are 2 points & 2 places above us in the table & a game that will no doubt end in abuse from my cousin who is a massive Castleford fan :s
P.S. I can’t talk about the game on Easter Monday, without mentioning the pre-match entertainment, ‘Fake That’, who got me really excited about seeing the real thing in June…Not long now 🙂
