If anything has stood out for new Rabbitohs recruit Tim Grant since arriving at Redfern, it’s the level of local support for the Club, best exhibited through the countless car stickers he’s seen in his short time at Redfern.
“There’s a massive tradition that goes along with the Rabbitohs,” said Grant in his first interview with Rabbitohs TV.
“It’s only building with the success of late, so it’s awesome. I don’t what the story is with those car stickers getting around – I don’t know if I’m just looking for them now or not, but you see them everywhere, so to be a part of something like that is pretty special.
“It’s a real refreshing thing for me to be here and to whack on the Souths gear – it’s awesome. I think it was like when you were a kid and you make junior reps and that sort of stuff.
“I put it on and there’s something special about it. To get here and train with the boys has been awesome.”
A representative quality player who has played in the front-row for New South Wales at Origin level, the NRL All Stars, City, as well as for the Prime Ministers XIII, Grant has hit the ground running at Redfern in preparation for 2015.
“I’ve been here for a couple of weeks now doing some rehab and that sort of stuff,” said Grant.
“For me, (my goal is) to play as many games as I can for Souths and to be my best – I haven’t really sat down and thought about what I want to achieve yet personally.
“My main goal is to play the best footy I can for Souths.”
