Jamie Peacock picks out “the best British player” at the moment

If anybody knows what it takes to win Super League, it is Jamie Peacock.

The Leeds Rhinos legend won three Grand Finals during his time at the Bradford Bulls including their treble triumph in 2003 before they defied the odds to win the title in 2005 as Peacock captained them to Grand Final glory from third.

He then won six Super League titles with Leeds including another treble in 2015.

This has made him the Super League’s most successful ever player with nine titles to his name.

Peacock therefore is a great judge of quality and also knows the pressure of expectation.

Thus, speaking on The Last Tackle on the Sportsman YouTube channel, Peacock gave his verdict on the pressure on Warrington Wolves and believed that England halfback George Williams is key to any success they can achieve in 2023.

He also described him as “the best British player” at the moment.

He said: “He was outstanding at the World Cup but what I find really interesting is round one we’ve already got a must win game, we’re straight into it.

“With Daryl you’ve got to give him till Easter time at least, now George Williams needs to step up I would love to see him play for Warrington in the form he plays for England.

“I believe he’s the best British player that we have, when he’s 10/10 there’s not a player near him. He’s going to have to do that at the start of this year for Warrington to be successful.”
