Jamie Peacock to retire at end of 2015

Leeds Rhinos legend Jamie Peacock has signed a contract extension that will see him hang his boots up at the end of 2015.

The 36-year-old signed a similar deal in March of 2012, hinting he would call time on his career at the end of 2014, but a superb 2013 saw him think again.

He will be just weeks from his 39th birthday if he retires at the end of this contract.

“I am pleased to have agreed the new contract,” the former England skipper said.

“I am looking forward to the new season and the next two years. Last year was the first time in over a decade that I had a full off season and I can feel the benefit of that again this winter as I look towards the new campaign.

“I still have a lot of goals I want to achieve in the next two seasons and high in those priorities is helping the transition of this group of players onto the next stage of their career and helping the Rhinos maintain the success we have had in recent years.”
