Nigel Plum is an Australian retired professional rugby league footballer. He played for the Sydney Roosters, Canberra Raiders and Penrith Panthers in the National Rugby League. He was known for his tackling technique.
Plum was granted a release from his contract with the Sydney Roosters in 2007 and immediately signed with the Canberra Raiders.
After a torrid 2010 season plagued with injuries, and in which Plum was restricted to performances in the Penrith Panthers' NSW Cup feeder side, the Windsor Wolves, Plum has made a miraculous comeback in 2011. Voted as the 2011 Big League Magazine's Hardest Hitter, Plum's first ever try for the Panthers was in 2011, against the Manly Sea Eagles.
On 15 August 2015, Plum announced his retirement from the NRL effective immediately after the Panthers' Round 23 win over the New Zealand Warriors. The Round 23 win also marked his 150th NRL game.
