Former Leeds Rhinos, Great Britain and England forward Jamie Peacock has been added to Wayne Bennett’s staff as England team manager for this year’s Four Nations tournament.
Peacock, currently football manager at Hull KR and capped 47 times (GB 26, England 21), will join Denis Betts and Paul Wellens in the England backroom staff. He will be responsible for team planning and logistics, day-to-day management of the tournament programme, manage relationships with the RFL, clubs and sponsors, and will lead on player support.
“I feel privileged to have been offered the position,” said Peacock. “Representing my country was always the proudest moments of my career, and being team manager will feel exactly the same.”
