2018 Fresh Face: Darren Nicholls

St George Illawarra halfback Darren Nicholls has joined the Dragons on a two-year deal ahead of the 2018 Telstra Premiership season.

Nicholls began his senior football journey in the Holden Cup at the Wests Tigers and after a few years in France has featured in the first grade squads of the Broncos, Rabbitohs and Panthers.

Last season, Nicholls skippered Penrith's Intrust Super Premiership outfit to grand final and NRL State Championship success. 

While he is yet to make his first grade debut, the time is now for Nicholls as he approaches his first season in the Red V jumper.
