David Grant (rugby league)
Originally from Forbes in rural New South Wales, Grant moved to Sydney and made his debut with the South Sydney Rabbitohs in 1976. The following year he moved to play for the Eastern Suburbs Roosters for one season, becoming the club's 678th capped player, before moving to spend four years with the Balmain Tigers. Upon leaving Balmain, the back-rower was named as the captain of the newly formed Canberra Raiders in its inaugural season in the New South Wales Rugby Football League premiership.
In Grant's first season he was selected to play for a Sydney representative team that toured New Zealand.
Grant was just 38 when he died of a heart attack in 1994.
