McNicholl was a stand-out performer in the 2012 National Provincial Championship, heading the Top tryscorers list with 10, three ahead of his nearest rival. His consistent ability to cross the line drew interest from new Blues coach John Kirwan, but McNicholl, who plays his club rugby for Sydenham in the Christchurch Metro competition, opted to commit to the Crusaders.[2]
