Tim Grant 2015 Player Review
Tim Grant joined the ranks of the Rabbitohs forward pack in season 2015 for the first time, and proved to be a vital source of go-forward for the men in red and green.
Grant likened his arrival at the Rabbitohs to being selected in a representative team when he first spoke to Rabbitohs.com.au.
“It’s a real refreshing thing for me to be here and to whack on the Souths gear – it’s awesome,” said Grant upon joining the Club.
“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.”
Playing predominantly from the bench with a combination of long legs, a low running-style, and plenty of aggression, Grant troubled opposition defenders by throwing his large frame at defensive lines with gusto in 2015, in what would prove to be a solid start to his tenure at South Sydney.
Chief among Grant’s 2015 feats was his try in Perth against the Warriors in Round 13. A mistake from the Kiwis on an attempted last-tackle kick-diffusion opened the door for Souths to have a final throw of the dice before half-time and Grant would be the ultimate beneficiary when he carried a handful of Warriors over the try-line with him to grab his first try in red and green.
In 21 appearances, the former Penrith Panther ran for a total of 1894 metres from 224 runs, helping to provide plenty of space for the Club’s little men, while also making some 490 tackles with an effectiveness of 96.2%.
