Description:
Peter Jackson (born 1930, died 2004) is a former rugby union international.

He earned the nickname 'Nijinsky' after the Russian ballet dancer.

He scored three tries in the 1957 Five Nations Championship and helped England to their first Grand Slam since the Twenties.

In 1958 against at Twickenham, he demonstrated his mastery of the feint to score a dazzling match-winning try. He then amazed the All Blacks on the 1959 Lions tour, scoring 16 tries in 14 games. He was described by one journalist as 'the zaniest runner of all time'.

Peter Jackson suffered a stroke in the early months of 2003 and was hospitalised where he later suffered another stroke in the summer of 2003. He died in hospital in March 2004.
