Bradford Bulls have announced that Second Row Forward Jamie Peacock will be the new Team Captain for Super League X. He takes over from Robbie Paul who will remain as Club Captain.
The 6ft 5in, Leeds-born 27-year-old second rower has notched 171 games for the Bulls since joining the club as a teenager and was voted Man of Steel in 2003.
Brian Noble feels that his experience will stand him in good stead as a Captain
"He leads by example and has a tremendous work ethic. He has also been in the system for the past eight or nine years now and he knows what we are trying to do and how we try to do it. He has the respect of the players and they value his opinion. He is a great talker and will talk about doing the right things when we are under pressure. It is not just about getting in there and rolling your sleeves up. He will lead by example but he is also smart."
Peacock is delighted to be asked to Captain the club:
"It a great honour for me. Bradford is a massive club and a lot of great players have captained it before. I am really pleased that Nobby decided to choose me because there are a lot of other leaders in the club. The likes of Iestyn Harris, Paul Deacon and Stuart Fielden are all up there as well and are natural leaders."
