Former England captain Jamie Peacock has been appointed as national team manager for the Four Nations.

The 38-year-old made 47 appearances for Great Britain and England between 2000 and 2012, scoring 12 tries.

Peacock, who will work alongside new head coach Wayne Bennett, said: "I'm looking forward to being part of a winning England set-up."

The Four Nations, which begins in October, features hosts England, Australia, New Zealand and Scotland.

Peacock played for Bradford Bulls and Leeds Rhinos before retiring in 2015 to join Hull KR as football manager.

He will join former Great Britain internationals Denis Betts and Paul Wellens as part of the England staff and will be responsible for team planning and player support.

Peacock won nine Super League titles and four Challenge Cups in his 17-year career.
