Johnny McNicholl

149.jpg
Speedy back Johnny McNicholl is back for his fifth season with Canterbury.
He has excelled at both wing and fullback, and his remarkable ability to break through tackles saw him regularly cross the chalk in the 2012 season, earning top tryscorer with 10, three ahead of his nearest rival. A broken ankle during the 2013 Crusaders season saw him miss much of the 2013 ITM Cup, but he will be rearing to go and looking to increase his try haul again this season.
He first joined the Crusaders in 2013 after being a part of their Wider Training Squad in 2012. In 2014 he scored seven tries for the Crusaders and four for Canterbury.  A hat trick in the first pre-season game of 2015 may be an indication of what lies ahead for McNicholl this season.
