Adam Peek – A Rugby League Journeyman

By Steve Mavin

In a career that began in 1997 and ended in the UK in 2011, Adam Peek played for 7 different rugby league clubs. One of those teams was the Rabbitohs in 2002 (first grade player #959).

Adam played in the historic first match after reinstatement when Souths met the Roosters in round 1, coming off the bench in front of 35,316 fans at the Sydney Football Stadium on the 15th of March 2002.

Prior to his arrival at Redfern, Adam spent 3 years at the Bulldogs and his dad John Peek also played for Souths (#639) and the Doggies making this father and son a rare duo who have both represented the same two clubs at the elite level.

Chaps, Browny and myself all work with now 44 year old ‘Peeky’ on the Port Botany waterfront, he’s a great bloke, a workmate who is always up for a chat, a family man and proud dad.

10 years after retirement the former forward is still looking fit and he’s a big unit too standing 190cm (6ft 3in) and weighing in over 100kg.

For the record Adam Peek made 179 appearances in the top grade scoring 10 tries. In the NRL his clubs were Adelaide, Bulldogs, Rabbitohs, Eels, Dragons, Sharks and Crusaders in the Super League…more clubs than Greg Norman!
