Adamson set to join Legends to celebrate Peacock's testimonial
Leeds Rhinos fans will get the chance to have lunch with former player Matt Adamson this Sunday as part of Jamie Peacock’s Legends Package for this testimonial game against Bradford Bulls at Headingley Carnegie.
Adamson, who famously played against Peacock and the Bulls with a fractured cheekbone in the Challenge Cup Final in 2003, has jetted back to England this week as part of the Golden Decade celebrations. He will be attended the dinner at Leeds Town Hall on Thursday night and will still be here on Sunday for Peacock's testimonial.
With no regular season meeting between the fierce rivals in 2015, the testimonial match is guaranteed to have an extra edge. Peacock won three Grand Finals, two Challenge Cups and two world club titles between 1999 and 2005 with Bradford before moving to his home town club in 2006. At the Rhinos he has continued his incredible run of success with five more Grand Final wins, two World titles and last year’s Challenge Cup Final win.
The game will be the Rhinos final run out before the new First Utility Super League kicks off so will see Head Coach Brian McDermott name his strongest possible line up. Tickets are on sale now starting from just £15 for adults and £5 for juniors. Season ticket holder seats will not be held as it is a testimonial game. Fans can however purchase an actual seat for the match.
Especially of this game, Jamie Peacock has created his Legend's Package which will take place in the Long Bar with a one course steak pie lunch hosted by former Leeds star Roy Dickinson, like JP a Stanningley ex-player, alongside Adamson, Barrie McDermott, Keith Senior, Robbie Paul and Rob Parker.
