Rugby League: SUPERDAN; GILLETTE TRI-NATIONS: BRITAIN 22, NEW ZEALAND 12; Dazzler Mac Turns on the Style to Spark a Sensational Comeback


Byline: David BURKE

DANNY McGUIRE can become Great Britain's new Garry Schofield.

The Leeds Rhinos stand-off could not add to his 39-try season tally on his full Test debut, but that did not matter.

It was the 21-year-old who made the incisive break which led to Stuart Reardon's crucial second try to sweep Britain ahead 16-12 in the Tri Nations clash at Huddersfield.

Form may be temporary but class is permanent and McGuire, restricted to a 20-minute cameo appearance against Australia last week, is now here to stay.

His clever flick from Sean Long's darting burst was also key to Reardon's first try, with Britain overcoming a 12-2 deficit at the break to pile up 20 unanswered points in the second half.

Schofield, formerly of Hull and Leeds, earned a record 46 caps between 1984-94 after making his debut aged 18.

Now 39, he is one of McGuire's biggest supporters and man-of-the-match Paul Wellens has joined the fan club too.

Wellens, who never put a foot wrong at full-back, grabbed his chance superbly in two Tests in Kris Radlinski's absence.

And the St Helens player said: "Danny has to be Britain's most naturally gifted stand off since Garry Schofield.

"He has electrifying pace and dazzling footwork. He's very level-headed and destined for a great future at international level.

"Danny and Sean Long have pace to burn and the second-half performance gives us confidence to settle the score against Australia.

"Our props Stuart Fielden and Adrian Morley also did the hard work when it mattered."

A full house at Wigan is assured on Saturday, with Britain needing one win from their two games left to seal a showdown with the Kangaroos on November 27. But it was far from a one-man show after the cavalier Kiwis romped into the lead thanks largely to a breathtaking performance from 19-year-old Sonny Bill Williams.

Skipper Andy Farrell was the British inspiration as he won his 31st cap 11 years to the day since making a try-scoring Test debut against the Kiwis. …
