Peacock, the Bradford captain whose move to Leeds was confirmed last week, moves up from vice-captain to replace the injured Paul Sculthorpe. He wears his heart on his sleeve and leads by example, but he also understands tactics, ... He's had a difficult season at Bradford with all our ups and downs, but I never flinched from promoting him.
It's pinch-yourself stuff, isn't it ... Statistically it's probably been the best era in the club's history and of course that makes me feel good. But corny as it sounds, I'm honestly more pleased for the players. That's why I do the job primarily and that's why getting to the grand final this year has been the best yet because we've been through some pretty dark times along the way.
