Last night I was privileged to get my hands on a review copy of 'Jamie Peacock: No White Flag' authored with Phil Caplan, and ever since I finished penning last nights match report, I've not been able to put it down.
The official launch is on Easter Saturday, 22nd March at Philip Howard Books in Roundhay, Leeds (from 11am) and I'd advise you to get yourself there a pick up a copy, although I'd warn you that you may well end up with your nose stuck in it for the rest of the day.
We review it here...
Now in his tenth year in the professional game, Great Britain captain Jamie Peacock has been there, done that, and got the T-shirt. Four times Grand Final Winner, Twice Challenge Cup Winner, Three times World Club Champion and Superleague Dream Team member on six occasions in the 21st century, you'd expect his autobiography to be a rivetting read, and it certainly delivers.
When you pick up an autobiography you always have a hope that the author will dish the dirt and give you the inside track on their career. Jamie doesn't wait long discussing a Noble assisted cover up when he severed the tendons in his hand after a drunken argument, but this is just the start.
While he gave 100% during his career at Bradford Bulls, being a match winner against the Rhinos on several occasions, his heart was always at Headingley. He'd watched his heroes from the terraces throughout his youth, remembering players like Roy Powell with a great fondness. The draw of his home side, along with the was he was treated during the Harris affair, all led to his decision to join the Rhinos.
Jamie has poured his heart and soul into this detailed catalogue of his first ten years in the game. There is something in here for everyone, so go and treat yourself for Easter.
Right...that's enough, I'm off to read the last few chapters.
