Nankivell made his provincial debut for the Tasman Mako in 2015 after a successful 1st XV campaign with Christchurch Boys High School in 2014.

He earned a place in the 2017 Gallagher Chiefs squad and stepped up to Super Rugby level with ease.

Nankivell’s impressive 2019 season caught the eye of the Māori All Blacks selectors and he made his mark on the international stage against Fiji.

The midfielder has continued to impress in 2021 and was an integral part of the Gallagher Chiefs team who made the Sky Super Rugby Aotearoa final as well as the Māori All Blacks 2021 campaign.
