Nichols was picked up by Richmond with pick 17 in the 1986 VFL Draft but didn't debut until the 1988 season. In the 1990 Brownlow Medal count he finished with the most votes by a Richmond player. He crossed to West Coast in 1992 but struggled to find a place in the side, managing just 4 games during his stint in Perth. North Melbourne signed him for the 1994 season but by 1996 was playing in the reserves, winning that year's Gardiner Medal. He played in three consecutive reserves premierships: with North Melbourne in 1995 and 1996, then with Richmond in 1997.[1]
