Nathan Peats (born 5 October 1990) is a rugby league footballer who currently plays for the Parramatta Eels in the NRL. His position of choice is at hooker but he has also played at loose-forward and second row.
The son of former Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs hooker Geordi Peats, his schooling was completed at Christian Brothers' High School Lewisham. Peats was a South Sydney Junior who played for the La Perouse Panthers.
Professional playing career
He was Souths' Under 20s captain, scoring 14 tries in 46 Toyota Cup games for the Rabbitohs. Peats captained the 2010 Under-20s South Sydney Rabbitohs team all the way to their Grand Final alongside former Rabbitohs team mates Adam Reynolds, Dylan Farrell and Josh Starling, where the South Sydney Rabbitohs lost to the New Zealand Warriors 42-28.
On 1 April 2011, Peats made his NRL Premiership début for the South Sydney Rabbitohs in Round 4 of the 2011 NRL season against the Manly-Warringah Sea Eagles at Bluetongue Stadium. Peats played in the Indigenous All Stars in 2012 and 2013, and represented City Origin in 2013. In June 2013, Peats signed a three-year deal with the Parramatta Eels starting from the 2014 season.
Peats was named in the Parramatta Eels team to compete in the 2014 Auckland Nines pre-season tournament. Good early season form from Peats for his new club saw his name thrown up, with others, as a potential replacement for the injured Robbie Farah at hooker for New South Wales.
