Casey McGuire (born 24 January 1980 in Nambour, Queensland) is an Australian professional rugby league footballer for the Les Catalans club of the European Super League competition. A Queensland State of Origin representative utility back, he previously played in the NRL for the Brisbane Broncos with whom he won the 2006 NRL Premiership. He recently signed a deal to return to the NRL with the Parramatta Eels.


McGuire made his NRL debut for Parramatta in 1998. The next season he returned to Queensland to play for Brisbane. At the Broncos he was a utility player, normally used in games from the bench. He achieved selection for the Queensland Maroons in 2005.


Selected to play from the interchange bench in the 2006 NRL Grand Final, McGuire's last game for the Broncos, he threw a miracle pass which contributed to Brisbane's match-winning try.


The next season he moved to France to play in Super League for Les Catalans. Having initially started playing the halves at Les Catalans, McGuire increasingly found himself playing at hooker and sharing much of the creative responsibilities with Adam Mogg and Thomas Bosc. He became a key figure in the side. He had also been named in the France squad for the Four Nations tournament, qualifying under the three-year residency rule, but did not play.


McGuire returned to Australia and the club where he made his NRL debut when he joined Parramatta for the 2011 season, playing as five-eighth. He has been one of the shining lights in what has otherwise been a season of unrelenting disappointment at Parramatta, which has netted just five wins and a draw. He has only missed a small number of games since returning to the NRL.
