The agile big man can play at either end of the ground, and at 197 centimetres is also capable of going through the ruck.

Season by season

Season by season

Despite not playing a senior game in 2018, Nick Larkey took great strides in his development in the VFL.

Larkey claimed the ‘Frosty’ Miller Medal, awarded to the league’s leading goalkicker, after an impressive season in North’s stand-alone side.

2017

Pick #73 at the 2016 National Draft, 198cm Nick Larkey earned his round 18 debut for North Melbourne after enjoying a standout season in the VFL for Werribee, ending the year as the Tiger’s top goal-kicker.

Larkey didn’t trouble the statistician’s much in his debut, failing to record a possession, but showed enough to the coaches to get another crack at AFL footy in round 20 against Collingwood.

While Larkey didn’t set either game on fire, he has been given the famous #20 at the club, showing how highly he is rated internally.
