Petaia's versatility has been a strength for both the Reds and the Wallabies, as he has played on the wing, at full-back, and as an outside centre over the past year. He is looking forward to contributing to the Reds' success under their new head coach and believes that focusing on his Super Rugby team's performance is the best way to move forward and leave the disappointments of the past behind.
