Nic White has played more than 50 Tests for the Wallabies including the 2019 World Cup, while also having stints playing professionally in France and England.

A proud product of Scone in the Upper Hunter Valley of NSW he is instantly recognisable with his moustache as much as he is driving the Wallabies around the great rugby arena’s of the world.

He returned from overseas competition to guide the Brumbies to a domestic Super Rugby Title  and recently re-signed to stay at the scrumbase of the team based in the Nation’s capital until the end of 2023. That’s a long time from his Brumbies’ debut back in 2011 as he closes in 100 games for the successful ACT club. 

This is your chance to nominate your favourite Sports Dad of the Year.

Keeping him grounded as his successful career shows no signs of slowing down is his three boys Leo (4), Sonny (2) and newborn Vincent.

“My 3 boys are a huge inspiration for me and a big part of my why,” Nick said. “I want to set a good example for them, so for me to show them I’m always giving my best.

“Since the boys were born I’ve had an incredible balance in my life and being able to come home after a hard day of training, a big win or bad loss their needs come first and become my priority which is a great distraction from the rugby bubble and puts life into perspective.”

Nic’s charity of choice if he wins the award is Where there’s a Will. It’s a charity made in honour of my cousin who passed away to suicide, William Carrigan.

Nic’s positivity is the thing I love the most about him. He just has this upbeat, warm approach to life that's contagious. It kind of sets the tone in our home.
