On tonight's Boots N All Stats Pack Phil Clarke mentioned there was a rumour Jamie Peacock may come out of international retirement.

 

I do hope so if only for the presence of the modern great.

There's absolutely no reason for him to. Prop is one position I'm not worried about for England.

I can confirm 30+ less sales for Scotland vs Italy at Workington, after this afternoons test purchase for the Tonga match, £7.50 is extremely reasonable, however a £2.50 'delivery' fee for a walk in purchase is beyond taking the mickey, good luck with that, it's cheaper on the telly.

I hope he stays retired.  There are now far better options at prop, all of whom I would rather see play ahead of him.  Peacock has had his day at that level.

I've always said that he was the driving force behind Leeds not Sinfield.

He's a great player, a true leader.

That's fine by Leeds.He's been a revelation since he had winter's off
but you and I weve been through that and this is not our fate.
So let us so let us not talk falsely now.
The hour is getting late

True, but not good enough to make the England squad right now.

He's tge best prop in SL at this point, check his stats out he is a machine, having said that he's probably only having this good a season because he's had a proper off season

I don't disagree.

His performance against Bradford was completely unprofessional.

I think having Peacock in the England squad would be a mistake. We have better options at prop now.

You mean you agree ;-)

Anyway he is the best prop in the league at the moment so should be considered if he comes out of retirement

I don't believe he is the best prop in the league. I would argue Eorl Crabtree is. Peacock may have made more meters then Crabtree but that's about it.

More metres, more tackles, more carries, hes also carried the team at times, dont get me wrong Crabtree has been great but Peacock has had probably had one of his best seasons of his career.

I agree, as I say he's retired but if he changes his mind he should be considered, I though people on here always bang on about being picked on form? Peacock is in the form of his life.

It doesn't matter how old he is or if there are younger players that could take his place. The WC is now. You pick your best players, not players for the future.

If Peacock is one of the best props, have him in the squad.

Peacock also has more missed tackles, more penalties given away less tackles bust. You would need to look at minutes played to see who is statistically the better player though. Peacock may have been on the field twice as long as Crabtree or vice versa.

 

Either way, I wouldn't pick him if he made himself available.

And Chris Hill, who has been fantastic this season.
