Nathan Peats : « No regrets, everything happens for a reason »
Nathan Peats, a 33-year-old Australian hooker who notably played in France for Albi and Toulouse, looks back on his career after announcing his retirement.
You played in France, Australia and England, what differences and similarities are there?
The physicality of the games week in week put in NRL in Australia is the main thing that is different. Also, the stadiums are a big difference too. In Australia, every stadium is big and high quality. England and France have them also, but not every team have them.
Who are the coaches and player who have marked your career?
I’ve had so many great coaches in my career, my favourites definitely being Brad Arthur from the Eels, also Neil Henry at the Titans.
Do you have any regrets when you look back?
No regrets, everything happens for a reason. I’ve had a great time, lots of ups and downs but all enjoyable in the end.
What do you want to do after rugby?
After rugby, more quality time with the family, they have sacrificed a lot for me, and now it’s time for us to have good family time without rugby league.
What is better memories with different team when you played?
I’ve had lots of good memories with all the teams I’ve played at. Making the finals with Titans in 2016 after I left the Eels was one of my favourites.
