Peacock ready for 10th Grand Final

If there’s one man who knows a bit about Grand Finals, it’s Jamie Peacock, who will appear in his tenth on Saturday.

Peacock, 34, has won four out of four with Leeds, having won three out of five with previous club Bradford, and in the past 12 years, he has only been absent from the Grand Final in 2006 and 2010.

The prop, who retired from international duty earlier this year, will hope to lead from the front as the Rhinos seek revenge for their Challenge Cup final defeat to Warrington in August.

He said: “There’s a lot of experience in this side and we know how to handle big games and close them out.

“(Warrington) have shown that they’ve been the best team through the season even though they came second to Wigan.

“They’ve beaten us in a final already this year and they are a very good side.

“I can’t remember being in a final with Leeds and not being the underdog. We like it because it means you come in with no pressure.”

Peacock has made more than 400 career appearances, and is just three games away from a double century with the Rhinos.

He has missed only five of their 36 games this season, playing in the World Club Challenge win over Manly and the Wembley defeat to Warrington.
