Rob Burrow believes the return of Danny McGuire can lead Leeds to victory in Saturday's Grand Final against Warrington.

Keen to repeat last year's man-of-the-match performance against St Helens, Burrow wants to continue the Rhinos' impressive form following wins against Wakefield, Catalan Dragons and Wigan.

He is hoping that Leeds are at their best on Saturday with the added influence of key figure McGuire, who is available again after his suspension in the semi-final success over Wigan.

"Danny is a special player who can do special things and having him back available is a big boost for us," he told the club's official website.

After a 36-18 win over St Helens in the semi-final, Burrow is aware of the quality within the Wolves side but claims that the return of McGuire has given everyone in the team a lift.

"Having him back available is a big boost for us," he added. "We will all need to be at our very best on Saturday because Warrington are a very good side who showed in the Cup Final that they can handle the big occasion."
