McDermott against McGuire match ban

Leeds Rhinos Coach Brian McDermott has hit out at the one match ban given to stand-off Danny McGuire for a reckless tackle in last week's play-off win against the Catalans Dragons.

McDermott says the Rugby League is in danger of taking the contact out of what is a contact sport. The ban means McGuire will miss this Friday's semi-final at Wigan, and the coach admits Leeds will miss him.
