Grimes repaying Richmond’s faith in him

There was a time, not that long ago, when, for Dylan Grimes, the prospect of playing in an AFL preliminary final would have seemed as far away as Germany, where he had gone on a desperate medical mission to overcome persistent hamstring problems.

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.
