Draft History: 
2013 NAB AFL Draft 3rd round selection (Carlton) No. 51 overall; 2018 Rookie Draft selection (Gold Coast) No. 19.

Nick Holman was given an AFL lifeline by the SUNS when he was selected with pick 19 in the 2018 rookie draft. The 21-year-old is back on an AFL list after two seasons with Central District in the SANFL where he made a name for himself as a prolific ball-winner.

Holman is a fierce competitor and has an excellent defensive game, with his ability to tackle putting him firmly in Stuart Dew’s plans for 2018. He played nine games for Carlton from 2014 to 2015 but will be hoping to add to that tally with the Gold Coast SUNS.
