Bradford's Jamie Peacock has won the 2003 Super League Man of Steel award.

The Great Britain second-rower, whose team face Wigan in the Grand Final on Saturday, claimed the sport's most prestigious individual prize on Monday.

The 25-year-old also won GMB Rugby League Players Association players' player of the year and Rugby League Writers' Player of the Year.

Bradford's Brian Noble was named coach of the year while Wigan's 20-year-old forward Gareth Hock won young player of the year.

"I would say this has been my best season," said Peacock. "I have managed to continue my form for most of the year, which is the most pleasing thing."

Peacock was presented with a specially-designed trophy and a cheque for 5,000 at the climax of the awards ceremony in Manchester on Monday.

Noble has steered the Bulls to the minor premiership and a third consecutive Grand Final, in addition to Challenge Cup success earlier this year.

He got the vote ahead of Warrington's Paul Cullen and London Broncos' Tony Rea, who both steered their teams to first-ever play-off appearances.

Wigan's caretaker-coach Mike Gregory, who has yet to experience defeat since taking over from Stuart Raper in July was also in contention.
