LEEDS RHINOS prop Jamie Peacock has collected another major award and is in the running for Super League’s top individual honour.

The 36-year-old former England captain is on a four-man shortlist for the Steve Prescott Man of Steel award, after being named Rugby League Writers and Broadcasters’ Association player of the year.

Peacock was also named in this season’s First Utility Super League Dream Team and scooped the Rhinos player of the year and fans’ player accolades, for the second successive campaign.

The Leeds veteran is on a four-strong Man of Steel shortlist which also includes Castleford Tigers hooker Daryl Clark, Warrington Wolves prop Chris Hill and St Helens rake James Roby.

It is the second successive year Peacock, who was Man of Steel in 2003 when he was a Bradford Bulls player, has been shortlisted.

The Man of Steel is chosen by a poll of every Super League player, overseen by a panel featuring a former Man of Steel, representatives from the players’ union and one representative each from the written and broadcast media.

Clark, 21, has also been shortlisted as young player of the year, alongside Rhinos’ 19-year-old stand-off Liam Sutcliffe and Wigan Warriors winger Dan Sarginson, 21. The awards will be presented at a dinner in Manchester next Monday.
