Leeds Rhinos legend Jamie Peacock reveals who will earn promotion to Super League in 2022

With the Championship in full swing, predictions are still coming in thick and fast about who will earn promotion to Super League for 2023 and beyond.

Featherstone Rovers and Leigh Centurions are tipped as the favourites and their form has revealed such, with Featherstone currently unbeaten in league and cup, whilst Leigh have lost just one game – against Rovers – and are in the fifth round of the Challenge Cup also.

Leigh and Featherstone booked their places in the Challenge Cup fifth round with victories over Widnes Vikings and Halifax Panthers respectively.

For Leeds Rhinos legend Jamie Peacock, there is one clear favourite to earn promotion to Super League – and it’s perhaps not surprising that it features his former Rhinos boss Brian McDermott.

“Mac’s (Brian McDermott) doing really well down there,” Peacock told The Last Tackle podcast.

“He’s a Super League coach and he’s one of the best in the business.

“I think Featherstone will get in Super League, so I’m really interested to see how Featherstone perform.”

Peacock also waxed lyrical about Featherstone’s chances in the Challenge Cup.

“If they get past Batley and get in the next round and get a Super League side with home advantage, they could do some damage.”
