Player Bio

At A Glance

Player Honours: NAB AFL Rising Star award nominee 2013
Brownlow Medal: Career votes 1
Junior Club: Cheltenham (Vic)/ Sandringham U18
Draft History:
2010 17-year-old access selection (Gold Coast)

Tom Nicholls will likely start this season as the No. 1 ruck option, but he had his challenges in 2016. After playing the first month Nicholls had to force his way back into the team. He played 10 successive games before suffering a PCL (knee) injury against Greater Western Sydney in round 20, finishing his season.

Nicholls signed a two-year contract extension that keeps him with Gold Coast until the end of 2018. The rangy ruckman is at his best around the contest and doesn’t mind getting his hands dirty, following up at ground level and making plenty of tackles (more than five a game last season).
