Yeah, he's a big lump. But I don't recall hearing of him for a long time, has he had a long-term injury?

Leeds (8) 16
Tries: Dwyer, Sutcliffe, Hurrell, Martin
Hull KR (14) 32
Tries: Parcell, Linnett 2, Quinlan, Livett, Hall Goals: Hall 3, Drinkwater

Danny McGuire delivered a masterclass to haunt boyhood club Leeds, guiding Hull KR to a priceless 32-16 win against their fellow strugglers. On his 400th Super League appearance, the 36-year-old stand-off was at the heart of Rovers' play, which brought about seven tries against the Rhinos.

Leeds managed four tries, but goalkicking let them down and they never quite got close enough.

Rovers stay 11th, a place behind Leeds on points difference.

ull Kingston Rovers won 24-6 in Perpignan to boost their hopes of avoiding relegation from Super League and leave Catalans Dragons in freefall.

Hull KR captain Joel Tomkins has been banned for two games, with an extra match for a "frivolous challenge" added to his charge for punching.

He was given a one-game ban for a Grade A punching offence in Rovers' home defeat by London Broncos on Sunday.

Tomkins also received a £500 fine, plus another £500 for contesting the Rugby Football League's original ban.
