Exclusive: Nathan Peats reveals the Super League club he wanted to join

Nathan Peats is heading for the Elite One Championship in France after failing to find a new club in Super League.

Peats signed for the Leigh Centurions in 2021 in a bid to help the Lancashire club avoid relegation, but exited midway through the year to join Huddersfield Giants.

The hooker became an integral part of Ian Watson’s side and helped turn around the West Yorkshire club’s fortunes towards the back end of the season.

A permanent deal wasn’t forthcoming, however, and Peats was left to try and manoeuvre a move elsewhere.

That move will see Peats try his hand in France, but the number nine has revealed that Watson wanted to get the deal over the line, but couldn’t due to quota availability.

“I would have loved to stay there,” Peats told Serious About Rugby League.

“Watto (Ian Watson) and I had a great relationship and it was the same with the players.

“In the end it just came down to quota spots, even though Danny Levi signed before I arrived he was still keen to get it sorted.

“But they had seven quota spots already filled for 2022 so it just couldn’t work out.”

It was earlier revealed by Serious About Rugby League that Peats had rejected a move to a Super League club.
