Like hell you would.I remember having a pretty big rap on Peats at the Eels, he's closer to Jake Friend than Andrew McCullough for mine. Would still prefer to have Peats :P
I actually think all three of those players are cut from the same cloth. None of them are especially dynamic but they're reliable dummy halves who get through a mountain of work and they're all pretty tough. Of the three, Friend has the higher ceiling owing to his years as a top dummy half coming through the grades. Both Macca and Peats were manufactured 9s who primarily came through as Ryan Hinchcliffe style ball-playing locks.
All three have really struggled with injury in recent times. I found it remarkable that McCullough played for Queensland before Friend, especially since there didn't seem to be a big blow up over it. It was a testament to just how much Friend was struggling with that sternum injury.
