Leeds Rhinos winger Scott Donald has agreed a new one-year contract extension with the club.

The 28-year-old Australian has scored 53 tries since arriving at Headingley.

Head coach Brian McClennan said: "Scotty is the best finisher in Super League as he showed with the try he got in the Carnegie World Club Challenge.

"In big games, he knows how to get over the try line. His awareness in defence is first class and he has an excellent kick return," he added.

"In our opinion, he is the number one winger in Super League and off the field is a first class guy too.

"The players and coaches have a lot of respect for him as a player and a man and we are delighted he has agreed a contract extension for 2009."

Donald joined the Rhinos in 2006 and scored a sensational try in the Rhinos 33-6 win over St Helens at Old Trafford last year and also scored the winning try in his side's Carnegie World Club Challenge success over Melbourne Storm.

The club is going in the right direction and I want to be part of it.

He has featured in every minute of every game since moving to Leeds, and welcomed the chance to extend his stay.

"I am extremely happy to have agreed a new deal for next season," said Donald.

"Myself and my family are really happy in Leeds and we are looking forward to the future.

"The club is going in the right direction and I want to be part of it.

"It is nice to have the support of the fans and that is what makes this such a great club to play for."
