Best of luck to the guy. Always gave 100% in what ever position he played. Shame to see him go.

Quite young but I don't blame him, He'll be a male model then I suppose.

Best of luck to Nick for his future endeavours outside of League.

Bit of a shock for someone who is only 28 years old. Never took a backwards step and always willing to try and motor forward as much as possible.

That's less women turning up next season.

Played well for us and lets face it we haven't given him a lot to work with. Seems a thoroughly decent articulate bloke who doesn't attract any negative publicity and who is working hard off the field to provide for his life after the game- if I dare say it, somewhat rare in Rugby League.

Probably his off the wall style and lifestyle attracted a lot of negativity from some of our fans - but people who are different often do I guess. Couldn't be happier he is leaving on a positive and making something happen as opposed to going until he can't get another contract and then worrying about life after.

All our very best no doubt.

Thanks for the efforts Nick, of only the rest of the squad tried as hard as you did. 23 tries in 31 games is a record not to be sniffed at either. Best memory of NY is the length of the field effort V Catalan at home in 2011. He was taking loads of stick from the 2 blokes stood behind me after he got out-jumped by Blanch in the 1st half. When the ball went up in the 2nd, one of the blokes behind me said "f***ing hell, here we go again" only, 10 seconds later, to be jumping and cheering Nick under the posts.
