Player Bio

The third of Richmond’s tall defenders, Grimes can play on small or tall forwards depending on what is required.

Described by his coaches as the “glue” in the backline, he keeps everything together.

With injury issues behind him, he played every game in 2017 and was seldom beaten, playing to his strengths and rarely stepping outside them. The Tigers can depend on him every week.

Player honours: NAB AFL Rising Star nominee 2012; premiership side 2017.
Draft history: 2010 NAB AFL Pre-Season Draft 1st round selection (Richmond) No. 2 overall.
