Five clubs interested in signing Warrington Wolves star

Matty Nicholson has had a breakthrough year with the Warrington Wolves. Having joined the club from the Wigan Warriors in 2023, Nicholson has made seven appearances so far, under new coach Sam Burgess, scoring two tries. 

However, Nicholson’s strong form has now attracted interest from the NRL. Several Australian clubs were interested in signing Nicholson in 2023, with the youngster electing to join Warrington instead. The Halifax-born player missed the early weeks of the season through injury, however, he has been an ever-present in the Warrington side since returning to fitness.

But he now looks set to make a move to the NRL, according to reports in Australia. Nicholson still has one year to run on his deal with Warrington. This does not appear to be an obstacle for the clubs who are vying to complete his signature.

According to a report in the Daily Telegraph, as many as five clubs are believed to be interested in signing Nicholson for the 2025 season. According to the report, Nicholson has informed the Wolves that he intends to leave the club, and has asked his Australian manager to find him an NRL contract.

“Warrington back rower Matty Nicholson has told his club that he wants to move to Australia next season, sparking a race to secure the signature of a player who has thrived under Sam Burgess this season.” The Telegraph states.

“Sport Con understands that his Australian manager Liam Ayoub has been contacted by at least five clubs expressing an interest in signing Nicholson, who has one year remaining on his contract but is believed to be available for a minor transfer fee.”

Where Nicholson will end up remains to be seen, however, he looks set to have no shortage of options as clubs scramble to secure his signature.

Nicholson is the latest in a string of Super League players who have been linked with a move to the NRL. Lewis Dodd has already agreed to a deal to join the South Sydney Rabbitohs, and Leigh Leopards forward, Tom Amone, has signed a contract to join the Canterbury Bulldogs. Leigh’s Kai O’Donnell will also reportedly make a move to the NRL for 2025.

Both South Sydney and the Wests Tigers have reportedly sent over scouting delegations. Their delegations have been tasked with securing the best Super League talent to take back to the NRL.

Last year, Kai Pierce-Paul and Will Pryce both joined the Newcastle Knights, having left Wigan and Huddersfield respectively. The stock of Super League players has never been higher, and clubs will be on high alert as they attempt to keep hold of their best talent.
