Nicoll-Klokstad has scored 16 tries in 37 appearances for the Storm's under-20 side over the past two years and was named Melbourne's under-20 back of the year and also received the Greg Brentnall Young Achievers' Award.

The Auckland-born player can play in the halves, centres and fullback, as well as on the wing.

Nicoll-Klokstad started playing rugby league with Mount Albert, Richmond and the City Newton Dragons where one of his team-mates was 2015 Junior Warriors captain Toafofoa Sipley. The pair will now be team-mates in the Warriors' NRL squad.

His surname provides an interesting back story, with his mother of Cook Islands-Norwegian extraction, while his father is Maori.

Made a try-scoring test debut for the Cook Islands in the 2017 Rugby League World Cup qualifier against Tonga in October 2015.

In Round 9 of the 2017 NRL season, Nicoll-Klokstad made his NRL debut for the New Zealand Warriors against the Sydney Roosters, playing on the wing in the 14–13 win at Mt Smart Stadium. On 6 May 2017, Nicoll-Klokstad played for the Cook Islands in their 2017 Pacific Test against Papua New Guinea, playing at fullback in the 32–22 loss at Campbelltown Stadium. In his next match in Round 10 againt the Penrith Panthers, Nicoll-Klokstad scored his first and second NRL career tries in the Warriors 36–28 loss as they blew up a 28-6 halftime lead at Penrith Stadium. On 13 June 2017, Nicoll-Klokstad re-signed a two-year contract with the Warriors, until the end of the 2019 season.

Nicoll-Klokstad was unable to break into the Warriors first grade squad for the 2018 NRL season, making no appearances in the year after being stuck behind David Fusitua and Ken Maumalo.

On February 8, 2019, Nicoll-Klokstad was granted a release from his contract with the Warriors to take up a two-year deal with the Canberra Raiders. In Round 1 of the 2019 NRL season, Nicoll-Klokstad made his club debut for the Canberra Raiders against the Gold Coast Titans, playing at fullback in the 21–0 win at Robina Stadium. In Round 3 against the Newcastle Knights, Nicoll-Klokstad scored his first and second club tries for the Raiders in the 17–10 win at Canberra Stadium.

Nicoll-Klokstad made a total of 26 appearances for Canberra and scored 11 tries in the 2019 NRL season as he enjoyed a breakout season. Canberra would go on to qualify for their first grand final in 25 years. Nicoll-Klokstad played at fullback for Canberra in the 2019 NRL Grand Final in which Canberra were defeated by the Sydney Roosters at ANZ Stadium.

In the 2020 NRL season, he made 21 appearances as Canberra finished 5th and qualified for the finals. He played in all three finals games including the preliminary final loss to Melbourne at Suncorp Stadium.

In round 5 of the 2021 NRL season, he suffered a neck injury in Canberra's 30-10 loss against Penrith. Nicoll-Klokstad was later ruled out for eight weeks.

Nicoll-Klokstad returned to the Canberra side for their round 23 match against Manly. He came on in the second half and with his first carry of the ball lost it forward. From the resulting play Manly scored a crucial try and eventually won the game 19-18.

On 6 July, it was announced that Nicoll-Klokstad would depart the Canberra club at the end of the 2022 NRL season and re-join his previous club the New Zealand Warriors starting in 2023.
