Danny McGuire is in danger of missing the Challenge Cup final after suffering a knee injury during Friday's win over Widnes.

The injury which forced the England stand-off to leave the field in the 69th minute inevitably took the shine off the win for the hosts.

Rhinos coach Brian McDermott said: "It is hard to tell if Danny's knee injury is serious.

"It could be just a bang or it could be a big one - a twist and maybe ligament damage, so it is concerning. My heart goes out to him if it is ligaments, but we hope it is just sore.

"We will leave it until the 11th hour because of what he means to us. We got a few bumps and bruises out there."

McGuire helped to set up three tries in the first half but failed to cross the line himself, leaving him one try short of the outright Super League record he jointly holds with his former Rhinos colleague Keith Senior.

McDermott added: "Pay Widnes credit - they came here with the strategy of throwing the ball about and they did that.

"We had some sloppy moments but I am not too bothered about the 24 points we conceded because we scored 68."

Beaten up

Widnes coach Denis Betts said: "We got caught in the headlights.

"We've had to change our team because of injuries and we are a bit beaten up at the moment.

"Leeds scored 40 points in the first half and would have been coming out for the second half thinking it was a piece of cake, so we had to go at them."

Betts is a big admirer of Leeds captain Kevin Sinfield, who dictated the play and landed 10 goals from 12 attempts.

He said: "Sinfield is magnificent the way he carries his team around. He inspires them and when the goals are there to be kicked he kicks them. He is inspiring and something to behold.

"I was glad the final kick failed because then we would have ended up conceding 70 points and we are better than the scoreline indicates.

"It was one of those tough nights and we will have to respond with a couple of good home performances."
