Re: Rumours and signings v9 : Thu Jun 30, 2022 9:41 pm  
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.

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?

Some cash. Chris Morley and £300k.

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

Sounds like a certain Mr Aki was around Warrington at the time

So, 2 players in 30 years?

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.
