Played five straight AFL games early in the season before injuring his ankle and missing six weeks. Grigg returned through the SANFL, but was unable to force his way back into Adelaide’s AFL team in the latter part of the season. Polled 10 votes in the Magarey Medal to be the Club’s leading vote-getter for the second year in a row. The long-kicking onballer signed on for 2016 and will be out to consolidate his spot in the side.

Despite only playing half the season in the SANFL, he finished as the Club’s leading Magarey Medal vote-getter.Grigg, who has changed to the No.8 guernsey, will be looking to cement his spot in the Crows’ AFL team in 2015.

Grigg forced his way into the Crows team in Round 17 after a string of dominant SANFL performances. The strong and skilful ball winner made a seamless transition to AFL, averaging 16 possessions and one goal in his five AFL appearances. Grigg returned to play a key role in the SANFL finals, where he won his first premiership with Norwood. Grigg finished third in the Magarey Medal Count despite missing the last seven games of the SANFL season.

Grigg was adjudged South Australia’s most valuable player after a dominant display at the Under-18 Championships last June. The youngest-ever player to make his league debut for Norwood (he was 16-years old in 2009), Grigg returned to the Redlegs league side in the latter part of the season, showcasing his booming and accurate left-foot kick. A strong endurance runner, Grigg was selected by Adelaide with the Club’s second pick (No.41 overall) in 2011 AFL Draft.
