The Bulls captain, and number twelve, is an integral part of their team and they will feel his loss greatly. At twenty-seven (born
14/12/1977) Peacock is coming to Leeds in his prime, with a good four or five years of service left. Leeds born and bred, Peacock started his
rugby career at Stanningley and has never hidden his desire to play for his home town club.|
At sixteen stone, and six foot-five inches, Jamie can play Prop or loose forward, but most rate his best position as second-row where he has
been capped fof GB. Peacock is in contention for GB captaincy for this years tri-nations following the injury of Paul Sculthorpe, but is up
against new team-mate Kevin Sinfield for the job.
For Leeds, Peacock is a natural replacement for the departing Chris McKenna, but can also offer us cover at prop forward should we need it.
He joins Shane Millard and Scott Donald as Rhinos imports for 2006, although the arrivals are still massively outweighed by the departures
of; Bai, Botham, Calderwood, Cummins, Dunemann, Feather, McDermott, McDonald, and McKenna.
This is without doubt a great signing for the Rhinos and one which will delight the supporters, currently on a downer after saturdays
Challenge Cup Final loss. Lets hope that it signals the start of an influx to Headingley.
