Peacock to play through pain

England skipper Jamie Peacock has insisted his ongoing knee injury will not stop him from playing in the Four Nations final against Australia on Saturday (England 7/2 – Four Nations outright).

The Leeds Rhinos (9/2 Super League Grand Final outright) forward, who helped the West Yorkshire outfit win the Super League this season, has been dogged by the knee problem throughout this international competition. 

Peacock had been a doubt for England’s last outing with the injury but led his side to an impressive 28-6 victory over the defending Four Nations champions New Zealand last weekend.

The veteran is now turning his attention to the final at Elland Road on Saturday, as he looks to play through the pain barrier once again.

He said: “I’m just doing what any other rugby player does to be fair.

“Sometimes you are not 100 per cent but that’s the way it is.

“My knee feels like it did three or four months ago, when it was pretty stiff, but you know if you can trust it structurally, that nothing is going to go, you can go out and play.”
