White powder earns Mitch Nichols a nomination for The Frownlow Medal Hall of Fame.

Former Socceroo Mitch Nichols has been nominated for The Frownlow Medal Hall of Fame after being arrested for possession of cocaine.

The Frownlow Medal is awarded to the player whose off-field demeanour epitomises the values of the modern day footballer and draws attention to the status of footballers as role models to young Australians. It covers Australia’s four major football codes; the National Rugby League (NRL), Australian Football League (AFL), the A-League (Football) and Rugby Union’s Super Rugby competition. Former NRL player Shaun Kenny-Dowall won the inaugural medal in 2015 and former NRL player Ben Barba is the most recent recipient.

The Frownlow Medal Hall of Fame honours former players and players who received media attention in previous seasons, for similarly scandalous behaviour, and its inductees include Ben Cousins and Julian O’Neill.

Nichols was arrested at a nightclub in Sydney in 2017 and received a four-match ban from Football Federation Australia.

Nichols will find out later this year if he has done enough to be inducted into The Frownlow Medal Hall of Fame. To learn more about his competition for Australia’s most prestigious inter-code award, go to www.instagram.com/thefrownlowmedal/
