Peats withdrawn from 2015 Indigenous All Stars

Dyldam Parramatta Eels hooker Nathan Peats has been withdrawn from voting for the 2015 Indigenous All Stars side as he continues his preparations for the upcoming Telstra Premiership season.

The Blue and Gold dummy half underwent surgery last June following an ACL injury, as well as a second surgical procedure on an existing shoulder injury soon after, and will be unavailable for the 2015 Dick Smith Auckland Nines tournament in late January, the Indigenous All Stars side, and the Eels’ trial match against the Wests Tigers in Alice Springs on February 13.

As he continues the final stages of his rehabilitation from surgery, Peats is setting his sights on Round One of the NRL season, or the Eels’ final pre-season trial match against the Penrith Panthers, as his earliest possible opportunities to return to the field.

And while the Eels hooker was polling strongly in the All Stars voting, Blue and Gold Members and fans have also been throwing their support behind his teammates, including Beau Champion, Chris Sandow, Luke Kelly and Reece Robinson.
