England can go “all the way” says Leeds Rhinos legend Jamie Peacock as he looks to recent success for vindication

Perhaps no British rugby league player knows more about what sits at the heart of success more than Jamie Peacock.

Peacock is Super League’s most successful player winning nine Super League titles including treble wins with both Bradford and Leeds which leaves him as part of an exclusive club.

Peacock also captain Great Britain and England and guided Great Britain to their last win over Australia all the way back in 2006.

He also knows about success against the odds winning two Grand Finals from fifth in 2011 and 2012 with the Leeds Rhinos, in which momentum was key.

So, Peacock is well placed to have his say on England’s chances of winning the World Cup and he believes they can go “all the way” looking to what happened with the Lionesses this summer when they got all the momentum as the host nation which carried them to European Championship glory.

Peacock told Betway: “We’ve seen in football with the European Championships that when a home nation goes deep into a tournament it brings everyone together.

“We’re not football, I get that, but we’re going to be on the BBC for a month. There’s time to build momentum, but that is generally only there when the home side is still there.

“The performance of England is huge in terms of how impactful the World Cup will be in this country.

“The aim for England has to be to make the final. If they do that, they’ll have momentum all the way through and that’s key.”
