RLW Player of the Year

Biography

Former Balmain junior played halfback in four straight grand finals (1968-71) with the Rabbitohs, the highlight being his brilliant two-try effort to defeat Manly in 1970. Among a galaxy of great players at Souths, Grant's role was often underrated and his sporadic Test career started with selection in the third and deciding Test against Great Britain in 1970. He toured NZ the following year, playing in the one Test on tour (the 24-3 loss at Carlaw Park), and was named RLW's Player of the Year. Grant also gained selection in Australia's 1972 World Cup squad but his Test career was usurped by the emergence of Tom Raudonikis.
