Peacock looks to put right “most embarrassing” Leeds day


Jamie Peacock says last season’s league meeting against Wigan at Headingley was his “most embarrassing” day as a Leeds player.

The Warriors are back in town for tonight’s televised clash, unbeaten in their last four trips to Leeds, which includes their nine-try, 50-8 thrashing of the Super League champions last June.

Leeds did claim sweet revenge later on in the season – beating Wigan in both the Challenge Cup semi-finals and the Super League play-offs – but the manner of last season’s home league defeat still rankles Peacock.

He said: “It was probably my most embarrassing day as a Leeds player, so we want to put it right.

“It’s a big game. We’ve had some good and some bad performances, but I’m enjoying the season so far.

“When you get a bit older, it’s these type of games that you look forward to most.”

The former England captain has come up against Wigan 46 times during his playing career, winning 24 and drawing one.
