Player Bio

Soft tissue injuries continued to follow the versatile defender in 2016, missing five games early with a hamstring injury and another when he injured himself in the warm-up.

Capable of playing on tall and small opponents, Grimes is a valuable member of the Tigers’ backline when fit, shutting down his man with a minimum of fuss.

His value was underlined with a seventh placing in the best and fairest, despite his time on the sidelines.

Player honours: NAB AFL Rising Star nominee 2012.
Draft history: 2010 NAB AFL Pre-Season Draft 1st round selection (Richmond) No. 2 overall.
