Peacock relishing Rovers challenge

Jamie Peacock is looking forward to taking up his new role of football manager at Hull KR from next season.

Currently in his tenth and final last season as a player at Leeds, Peacock wants to help Rovers to reach their potential by sharing some of the best practise from his time with the Rhinos.

“I’m going to helping out with the rugby side of things,” Peacock told SLTV.

“It’s a challenge I’m immensely looking forward to. I think Leeds, the club I’ve been at for the last 10 years, is an exceptionally well-run club – it’s the one that’s out in front of everyone else.

“I’m going to try and install some of those best practises at a club I feel has got an absolutely great base of fans.

“Every time I go there as a player and play, I know how passionate they all are about it.

“There’s some great people working there anyway. I’m just hoping to add to that and to grow Hull KR as a club.

“In life, I want to make a difference. The Rhinos has been so well run for so long, that it’s pretty difficult to make a difference there.

“But I feel that with the experience I’ve gained over the last 20 years in rugby league, and also my academic background now, I can make a difference at Hull KR.

“The game is stronger if we have stronger clubs, the more strong clubs we have the better the game is as a whole.

“I’m going to do my best to make Hull KR as strong as possible.”
