Player Bio

At a Glance

Junior Clubs: Athelstone/Norwood
Debut: v Geelong, Round 17, 2013
Recruited from: Norwood
Brownlow Votes: -

The skilful left-footer bettered his 2013 games tally (five) by playing nine AFL games in 2014. Grigg started as Adelaide’s substitute on several occasions, but managed an equal-career high 21 possessions and a goal in a full game against Geelong in Round One. 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.

Season by Season

Season by Season

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.

Season by Season

Adelaide’s second pick in the 2011 AFL Draft, Grigg split his time between the Redlegs league and reserve teams in his first year at West Lakes. A neat and long-kicking ball winner, Grigg has the capacity to play in a variety of positions.

Season by 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.
