Nathan Peats re-signs with Gold Coast Titans

The Gold Coast Titans have announced the re-signing of NSW Origin hooker Nathan Peats for a further three years until the end of the 2020 season.

The 26-year-old joined the Titans midway through last season and has been a pivotal figure in the team with the passion and determination he displays in every game he plays whether it be for his club or his state. Peats has played 21 games in Titans colours as part of an 110-game career to date.

Whilst the early part of season 2017 was marred by a serious shoulder injury, the La Perouse junior has excelled since returning, earning a New South Wales jersey and playing in all three State of Origin matches this year.

With the birth of his second child and now a contract extension, Peats has had a lot to smile about recently.

“It’s great to have my future sorted here at the Titans,” Peats said. “It’s been a bit of a process but I’m happy to have it done and to know I’ll be here for another three years is really pleasing.

“It’s been a big year but with everything now sorted, I’m looking forward to focusing on the remainder of this season and my future here with the Titans.

“We’ve got a good bunch of guys here and a number of young players that have a bright future in the game. It’ll be good to be part of this team and we’ll be looking to do some good things over the next few years.”

Head Coach Neil Henry is happy Peats will be a Titan for the next three years.

“Nathan has developed as a player and that has shown with his NSW selection this year,” Henry said. “He is one of those players that his teammates want to play with and he always plays with plenty of passion and commitment.”

“He is a great trainer, prepares thoroughly and always competes on the field. His attitude and leadership will help the Titans grow as a club in the coming years.”

  1. How much did he sign for? Despite the series loss I’m pretty sure Peats won big from Origin this year, selection probably added 100k to his contract.

  2. I think it was around 700-750k. Origin definitely knocked price up but he’s a quality player.

    • I think it was reported that his on 1.9 million for 3 years, so I think that’s around $630,000 a year.
