Former Eastern Suburbs and Parramatta halfback who post-retirement was Parramatta coach in 1980.
Replacing Len Stacker, his two seasons at the club appeared to be riddled with rumours of interference from club officials about team selections.
He was able to improve the Panthers’ attack but the defensive problems still existed, although overall results were a slight improvement from previous years.
He would be replaced by former player Tim Sheens for the 1984 season.
Peard was later NSW coach in 1988.
