Player Bio

At A Glance

Player honours: NAB AFL Rising Star nominee 2010
Brownlow Medal: Career votes 5.
Previous AFL club: Western Bulldogs (2009-15: 81 games, 83 goals)
Junior Club: Frankston Bombers
Draft history: 2007 NAB AFL Draft 1st round selection (Western Bulldogs) No. 5 overall; 2015 delisted free agent (Gold Coast)

From the moment Jarrad Grant broke his wrist in a cycling accident during the pre-season, he was on the back foot in his first year with the SUNS in 2016. The former Western Bulldog worked his way into the team by round five, but suffered a hamstring injury a month later that again sidelined him.

The 27-year-old played 13 games in Rodney Eade's side last season and will be looking to win a spot in the forward line alongside Tom Lynch, Peter Wright and Sam Day, but could push to a wing or prove a valuable replacement if injury strikes.
