It’s a case of back to the future for Shaun Grigg in his AFL playing career.

Grigg arrived at Richmond at the end of 2010, after a four-year career with Carlton, renowned for his ability to win contested ball.

He then showed his versatility by developing into a hard-running, outside midfielder for the Tigers.

Now, in the early stages of his fifth season with Richmond, Grigg is adapting well to a return to more of a contested ball-winning role.

The consummate team player, he is more than content to assist the Tigers in any way he can on the field of battle.

“It’s a bit more maybe inside than previous, which is nice,” Grigg said on this week’s edition of ‘Talking Tigers’.

“I’ve been flicked around . . . a bit forward, a bit on the wing, a bit inside.

“It’s good to have that flexibility of playing both roles. 

“Whatever’s needed on the week to week I’m happy to do, and whatever’s best for the team.”

Grigg, who turns 27 next Sunday (April 19), has played 126 league games all-up (83 for Richmond) since his debut season in 2007.
