Nankervis enlisted in 1940 and due to his commitments with the Australian Army would initially only appear sporadically in the VFL. He played for three clubs in his first three seasons, for a total of 11 games.
A rover, he returned to his original club, Geelong, in 1944 and made 12 appearances. 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.
He was the son of Geelong footballer Stephen Nankervis.
