Nicholas Holman Biography

Monday, 21 February 2022
Gold Coast will head into 2022 with Touk Miller to join Jarrod Witts to serve as co-captains of the club.

The change comes after David Swallow stepped down from the captaincy following four years at the helm alongside Witts.

Sam Collins is the vice-captain, while Swallow will be joined by third-year midfielder Noah Anderson, Sean Lemmens and Nick Holman in the seven-man leadership group.

At first, Nick Holman thought he was winded from a hit to the stomach in round 18. Nine days later, he left hospital nine kilograms lighter after suffering a perforated bowel.

"After the game, I was talking to the doc and about 10 minutes later I was feeling shocking. I started feeling really crook, got hot and sweaty and had to lie on the ground," Holman said.

Arriving at nearby Pindara Hospital 24 hours after Richmond, Holman was put through a series of tests as doctors struggled to identify the problem.

"Lucky mum and dad were there, they were with me the whole time, which was comforting because it was scary. I'd never experienced anything like that. I woke up Sunday morning and I was all drugged up and had a big scar down my guts and a few staples," Holman said.

The 26-year-old could only consume ice for the next four days, with a tube running from his nose through his body. On day five he moved to liquids and day seven to solid foods.

"When the doc was talking to me at the start, I didn't realise how serious it was. I thought I could come back for the end of the season. He ruled that out and said it was pretty serious. He said this kind of injury happens to people when they're in a car crash, that's what it's equivalent to. The damage a seat belt can do," Holman said.

Wednesday, 11 July 2018
Nick Holman has continued his fine comeback to the AFL by signing a one-year contract extension with Gold Coast.

The 23-year-old has been a shining light for the Suns in 2018, playing all 15 games and mixing his time between half-forward and the midfield.

"I wasnít really sure how the whole year was going to pan out but itís worked out really well," he said.

"The boys have been really good and all the coaching staff have helped me out. Hopefully I can give back to them what I owe."

Saturday, 31 March 2018
Gold Coast coach Stuart Dew lauds the effort of Nick Holman in his first two games for the club.

"We have brought in Nick Holman and I think he's gone 13 and 10 (tackles). You love to have someone like that who plays like his life depends on it," Dew said.

"He's on his second chance, so he's living the dream again."

Tuesday, 6 March 2018
Since being delisted by Carlton in 2015, Nick Holman has been desperate to impress.

Playing as a small forward in Gold Coast's pre-season match against Geelong, he finished with 15 disposals, kicked a goal, gave off another to Sean Lemmens, but most noticeably had a match-high eight tackles.

He is now squarely in the frame to be in the Suns' 2018 round one team to take on North Melbourne in just under three weeks.

"It's been a long couple of years," Holman said.

"I never thought I'd do it again, so it was good to pull on a Suns guernsey."

Monday, 9 November 2015
After being delisted by Carlton, Nick Holman hopes to be re-drafted as a rookie by the club after being given permission to the train with the Blues.
Wednesday, 28 October 2015
Robbie Warnock's checkered time at Carlton has come to a close after the club delisted him on Wednesday.

Nick Holman and rookie-listed pair Tom Fields and Brad Walsh were also delisted as the Blues made the final changes to a list that has undergone great upheaval since the appointment of new coach Brendon Bolton.

Friday, 22 August 2014
Nicholas Holman makes his AFL debut for Carlton at Adelaide Oval with 8 disposals (5 kicks and 3 handballs), 2 marks and 4 tackles in a 103-point loss to Port Adelaide.
