Leeds Rhinos will celebrate the 500th game of Jamie Peacock's career by naming this Friday as 'JP Day' in honour of the former England captain.

The 36-year-old will reach the landmark against Wakefield, who coincidentally were the first team he played against when he made his Super League debut for Bradford in 1999.

Leeds have announced they will distribute thousands of Peacock masks at Friday's game at Headingley and will use a special hashtag #JP500 for fans to pay tribute to the forward on social media that will be shown on the big screen.

"JP has announced that next season will be his last in the game so this is a chance for us to mark an incredible landmark in his long career and pay tribute to him when he is at the top of his game," said Leeds media manager Phil Daly.

"He is the most iconic and successful player of the Super League era, so for him to reach this milestone exactly 15 years after his first Super League appearance and against the same opposition has a nice symmetry to it."
