The pilot conducted a normal approach and landing with a 5-8 knot crosswind from the left. During the latter stages of the roll the aircraft began to turn left. The pilot had relaxed slightly on the required back stick as they applied right brake to stop the left movement (they had already applied full right rudder) and the aircraft pitched over and contacted the ground on the underside of its nose, resulting in minor damage to the propeller and cowling.
