Nankervis enlisted in 1940 and due to his commitments with the Australian Army would initially only appear sporadically in the VFL.[2] He played for three clubs in his first three seasons, for a total of 11 games.[3]

A rover, he returned to his original club, Geelong, in 1944 and made 12 appearances.[3] The following year he had his best season, with 43 goals from 19 games. His goals tally included seven in a game against Footscray and was enough to top Geelong's goal-kicking.[3]

He was the son of Geelong footballer Stephen Nankervis.[4]
