Rugby League’s finest forward tells his story


Jamie Peacock is known and respected as one of the most powerful, committed and patriotic forwards in world rugby. After more than ten years playing the game professionally and having overcome all odds to become one of the greatest players of the modern era, Jamie brings us his story.

Coming from a forthright Yorkshireman, it is packed with honest opinions and anecdotes which provide the reader with a unique look into life as a top sportsman. Written with the same passion and determination that Jamie brings to the field and describing Rugby League exactly as he sees it, No White Flag is an essential read for anyone with interest in the modern game.
