I watch a lot of the academy and Nicholson is one of the best prospects I’ve seen come through for a long time - a backrower with pace, footwork, a passing game. For me, he’s better than Smithies was at that level.

Time will tell how well he goes at first team level but there’s no denying he’s a huge loss to the club, regardless of the reasons why.
"Games as big as a grand finals define individuals and clubs. Remember we are only renting these shirts, I had my time in Pat Richards shirt. Ellery and Faz had there time in Sean's, Hampo and Radders in Sam's. You have to make a mark in these shirts that's still there the day you hand it over to someone else. So be aware for 80 minutes you are not only playing but also writing history and creating a legacy. How many people get to actually write history, not many. A big stage demands big players, be inspired. You play for Wigan, now go do it. Good luck." - Martin Offiah, 2010.

As good as Nicholson may be, and according to your fans he is clearly quality. But I doubt he'll go on to be as good as Harris or Sculthorpe who were pinched after coming through our academy. Is there a club(with a poor academy by the way)that has 2 future MOS taken from them?

Pinched? I thought you sold them for a transfer fee?

Pinched/Taken sounds like you should have notified the police if this is happening to your young players.

Legend in his own lunchbox is Mr Aki, is he still around or has he been sectioned.

Exactly, I’d settle for that for Nicholson and Longstaff. Not a comparable argument by your fellow supporter, please educate him/her.
