Nathan Peats has been pictured for the first time at his new club.
The hooker left Super League at the end of the 2021 season with no offers that met his valuation, and so he was snapped up by French Elite One side Albi.
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.
Peats previously revealed to Serious About Rugby League that he was heading to France to play before assessing his career options next Easter.
“I’m going France to play in Elite One comp over there until the end of April, and if an opportunity pops up back here I would come back 100% in April.
“There’s no point staying here if it’s not Super League, I’m not that desperate to hold onto my career by playing reserve grade rugby league in UK and to be honest I’m too good of a player to do that.”
