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.
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.
